Planning permission was granted on 28 September 2012 for the mixed use development of the Olympic Park following completion of a complex and wide-ranging Section 106 Agreement.
The development will be known as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Now the planning gain agreement is in place, the master plan - for five new neighbourhoods totalling 6,800 homes and 130,000 square metres of employment space in the Olympic Park - has full planning permission.
The Section 106 agreement includes £17 million of transport improvements.
Horgan Lovells advised the London Legacy Development Company, formerly the Olympic Park Legacy Company, on securing the planning permission.
The new development will be located on development platforms left following the removal of the temporary Olympic Games facilities and will frame the retained Olympic venues including the Aquatics Centre, the Olympic Stadium and the Velodrome.
The development will include 6,800 new homes across five neighbourhoods, three schools, three medical centres, nurseries, cultural and leisure uses together with commercial and retail units.
Construction of the development is expected to begin in autumn 2013 with a lengthy projected build programme of 18 years.
