Planning applications for the Olympic Park were given the thumbs up by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA)’s planning committee.
The plans for the 246ha site – set to be one of the largest urban parks to be built in Europe for 150 years - were recommended for approval at a public meeting held last week.
Sitting on the committee were representatives from the four East London boroughs that will house the park.
Chairman of the London 2012 Organising Committee Sebastian Coe said: “This is one of the biggest and most complex planning applications ever prepared in this country, so the news that it has been recommended for approval is another key milestone for us on the road to 2012.”
The application includes permission for post-Games regeneration work, such as the earthworks and landscapingfor the creation of permanent public open spaces.
The plans are now going to the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the Government Office for London (GOL) for they are given the green light.
