Just Space took part in an important Local Plan examination, March 3 – 12, bringing together community groups and individuals from Stratford and Hackney Wick to challenge and try to improve the LLDC’s new Local Plan policy. The London Legacy Development Corporation is the Mayor’s planning authority for an extended area around the Olympic Park. Continue reading
Just Space has facilitated and submitted observations and objections to the London Legacy Development Corporation’s draft Local Plan. [The LLDC, a “Mayoral Development Corporation”, is in effect the 34th Borough in London and is responsible for local planning.]
A Planning Inspector will examine the Plan in Stratford beginning at 10am on Tuesday 3 March. Address: Level 10, 1 Stratford Place, Montfitchet Road,
Stratford, E20 1EJ. http://queenelizabetholympicpark.co.uk/our-story/transforming-east-london/local-plan/examination-of-the-legacy-corporation-local-plan
Just Space says:
“We consider the Local Plan is not legally compliant and does not meet the duty to cooperate. We also consider the Local Plan is unsound because:-
- It has not been positively prepared
- It is not consistent with national and regional policy
- It is not justified
- It is not effective”
