Planning Authority

The London Legacy Development Corporation acts as the planning authority for the area around and including Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.    

This means that any planning application made in that area, called the Legacy Corporation planning boundary, must be submitted to us rather than to the local borough.

All information on current and past planning applications is held on our Planning Register.

PPDT believe that the effectiveness and quality of our work is maximised by employing people from a range of backgrounds and experiences and making full use of their talents to promote excellent working relations.

We encourage all people and organisations that use our services to support this culture where everyone feels respected and is treated fairly.

Our planning role

We have the responsibility for looking after the development of buildings and outdoor spaces in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.  

Making an 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.

Pre-Application Advice Service

The Legacy Corporation encourages you to discuss your planning proposals with a member of our Planning Policy and Decisions Team (PPDT) before making an application. This is particularly important for large and more complex planning schemes.

Planning policy

We act as the planning authority for this area, including defining planning policy for development in the area. As part of this, we are currently conducting a Local Plan Review
