2012 was a landmark year as the world’s spotlight shone on London for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. 10 years later, that legacy lives on at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – a world-leading destination for sport, entertainment, culture, education and relaxation and a global centre for enterprise.
Started by the opportunity of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the London Legacy Development Corporation is creating an innovative London metropolitan centre, with a global focus. We are making Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the vibrant communities surrounding into an attractive and inspiring place where people come together to achieve great things; a place where local talent is celebrated and the benefits of regeneration can be shared by all; and a place that attracts investment, improving local lives as well as driving national economic growth.
Find out more about how the London Legacy Development Corporation is working to create jobs, apprenticeships and opportunities for local residents on and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and how we’re attracting new businesses and investment.
WORKING WITH THE COMMUNITY
We want new and existing local residents to be part of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s story and ongoing development. Find out more about how you can get involved, as well as our work in east London to ensure the benefits of regeneration can be shared by everyone.

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 Planning Register has a full list of current and determined planning applications. Details of how you can comment on current planning applications can be found on our how to view and comment page.
You can also view details of all current planning policy consultations on new or revised planning policies and guidance documents on our current planning policy consultations page.
