Greenwich Park Olympics: Planning application goes in

Olympic organising body LOCOG has finally submitted its planning application for using Greenwich Park during the 2012 games. The application went in on 30 November, but details have only now been made public. The summary on Greenwich Council’s website reads:

The temporary use of the site for the hosting of the Equestrian and Modern Pentathlon events (including the Test Event in 2011) for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. The temporary structures include a 23,000 seat arena, training areas, stabling, a cross country course, operational and site set up and removal compounds, vehicular and pedestrian access areas, operational parking and ancillary structures.

Details can be found on the London 2012 website, or from Greenwich Council’s planning department.

I understand NOGOE, the body campaigning against the Games coming to the park, is planning to hold a meeting in mid-late January to work out its response.


  1. You can’t *not* comment on this. You are one of the few local voices who support the Olympics and you need to tell us what you make of the shocking stuff in this application. We’re waiting.

  2. Hello Antonella – haven’t had time to wade through it yet. I will do, but I don’t want to jump to any conclusions. Have you read it? What do you think?
