Planning consultations

Planning consultations

Consultations allow members of the public to have their say on London 2012's policies and plans.
From time to time, the organisations delivering London 2012 will want to get your thoughts on programmes, policies or initiatives, as well as planning applications being submitted for developments on the Olympic Park and other venues.
Consultations allow us to get your thoughts and feedback on our work.

Consultations are held before and after planning applications are submitted.

Pre-application consultations

The ODA applies for planning permission from the independent ODA Planning Decisions Team (PDT). Before it does this the ODA holds a consultation to get your views. These are called pre-application consultations.

The PDT processes all planning applications relating to the Olympic Park and other venues. It then makes recommendations to the final independent decision maker - the ODA Planning Committee. In this way, your feedback could influence and form part of the planning submission.

Post-application consultations

After a planning application has been submitted the PDT holds another consultation. These are called post-application consultations.

They involve consultation that the PDT as the planning authority is obliged to carry out as well as other activity such as briefings for local community groups and public 'drop-in' sessions.

You can read about post-application consultations on the ODA PDT website
