London Planning Applications
The scale of the area means that there are thousands of applications submitted in London for a diverse range of schemes, from the smallest of house extensions to the largest schemes of national or strategic importance.
One of the largest Planning Applications in London was for the 2.5 sq km Olympic Park in Stratford for the 2012 Olympic Games.
The Mayor of London is consulted on all planning applications in London that are of “potential strategic importance”. These include the development of 150 residential units or more; development over 30 metres in height (outside the City of London) and development on Green Belt or Metropolitan Open Land. The consultation process has two stages. Firstly, the Planning Department in London consults the Mayor once an application has been made and makes comments accordingly. The application for planning in London is then considered by the LPA at its planning committee. The LPA then refers the application back to the Mayor for his final decision (stage 2 referral).
