Countdown to North Park Opening
The planning application for the Legacy Communities Scheme (LCS) was submitted in September 2011 to the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) Planning Decisions Team (PDT), the planning authority for the Olympic Park.
The Legacy Communities Scheme sought permission for the long-term development of five new neighbourhoods within the future Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
During October and November 2011, the ODA PDT considered and consulted on the LCS planning application and subsequent District Heat Network Extension Planning Application. This post-application consultation was carried out by the PDT, as the local planning authority, including briefings for local community groups and public ‘drop-in’ sessions.
In December 2011, the ODA PDT identified matters where it considered that the planning application and its supporting information required amendment, clarification, correction or additional information. A response was submitted in February 2012, (known as the Regulation 22 Response and Additional Information submission) comprising additional information, clarifications and amendments to the Legacy Communities Scheme planning application. The ODA PDT also consulted on this submission.
You can find further information on the documents included in our Legacy Communities Scheme Planning Application on our website.
You can find a summary of the key points addressed in the LCS and how we have addressed the feedback we received during public pre-application consultation on our vision and plans for the Park after the Games.
