Our planning role

The London Legacy Development Corporation was created in 2012 and has the responsibility for looking after the development of buildings and outdoor spaces in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.  

You can read more about the history of the organisation and how we operate here.

As part of this remit, we act as the planning authority for this area, carrying out all of the planning functions that a local planning authority would normally have responsibility for, such as approving or rejecting new developments, giving guidance to local developers, and making high level plans for development in the area.

Submitting a Planning Application 

If you are making a planning application relating to land within the Legacy Corporation Planning Area, this must be submitted to the Legacy Corporation, rather than to the local borough.

Further details on submitting a planning application to the Legacy Corporation, as well as details of associated processes and procedures can be found on our Making an Application page. 

Planning Decisions Committee

The Legacy Corporation Board has appointed a Planning Decisions Committee to ensure that decisions on planning applications are made in an open, transparent and impartial manner.

The committee is made up of two members of the Legacy Corporation’s board, four independent members, and five local Councillors recommended by the four boroughs around the Park.

Further information on the planning decisions committee, including details of the current members and links to associated papers, reports and minutes can be found on our Planning Decisions Committee page.

  • The Legacy Corporation regularly consults with local people and organisations during the determination of planning applications and in the preparation of local planning policy documents which affect the area around the Park.

    Details of how the Legacy Corporation engages with the local community and other key stakeholders is laid out in the Statement of Community Involvement which can be viewed and/or downloaded below:
