A further round of statutory consultation was carried out between 27 July and 21 September 2020. The documents can be found on London Resort's Statutory Consultation page.

The Borough Councils response can be found on Final London Resort Consultation Response page or our London Resort Statutory Consultation Questionnaire page

The application for the Development Consent Order was submitted on 31 December 2020 and was accepted by the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) on 28 January 2021. The application documents can be found on the National Infrastructure Planning website. It is strongly recommended that you consult the London Resort Examination Library first to navigate the material as the application is very large and complex.

If you wish to make representations about this application you need to register with PINS before 31 March 2021. The relevant form and guidance on this part of the Examination process can be found on the National Infrastructure Planning website.  Please note that the Examination process will be run to a very tight timetable, yet to be published, and the deadlines set out by PINS will have to be adhered to.
