The London Legacy Development Corporation has initiated a formal review of its Local Plan covering the area in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The Local Plan was adopted in 2015 and is the statutory Local Plan for the area. It sets out the strategy for growth and changes within the area over the period of time to 2031. It also sets out the policies that are used to shape and decide new development in the area.
The Legacy Corporation is reviewing the Local Plan to respond to new evidence that is being prepared on key matters, as well as the changes that have occurred at local, London and national level. The first period of consultation will run from Monday 6 November 2017 to 5 pm Monday 29 January 2018 and is aimed at gathering views on which policies and other parts of the Local Plan should be included in the review. This is an opportunity for people to make their views known on what part of the Plan should be considered for change.
Anthony Hollingsworth, Director of Planning Policy & Decisions, London Legacy Development Corporation, said: “There is a huge amount of new development in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and over the next 10-15 years parts of Stratford will change considerably . That’s why it’s so important for local residents and businesses to get involved and tell us their views to help shape future development in the area.”
