Planners recommend Olympic Park designs for approval

  • Comment
Designs for the 100ha Olympic Park in Stratford have been recommended for approval by planners.

The 10,000 pages of applications were submitted in February and include plans for new sporting venues, highways, bridges, river works, utilities and open space in the Olympic Park.

The applications were submitted to the ODA's Planning Decisions Team, which is responsible for processing all applications relating to the Olympic Park on behalf of the Olympic Delivery Authority's (ODA) Planning Committee.

Following a public meeting in Stratford this week, the planning application was recommended for approval.

It will now be approved by the Government Office for London and the Greater London Authority before final permission for the applications is granted.

The chief executive of the ODA, David Higgins, called the recommendation for planning a 'significant step forward.'

'Once the planning permissions for the Olympic Park are granted, there will be more consultation on detailed planning applications for individual venues and on the legacy masterplan, so there will continue to be opportunities for people to comment on the plans for the future Olympic and legacy Park,' he added.
