West Ham United have written to the London Legacy Development Corporation requesting that the board be able to reveal further details of their plans for the Olympic Stadium.
According to the club, the LLDC - who have taken over from the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) with regards to overseeing the use of the stadium post-Olympic Games - have thus far refused to sanction the release of specific details pertaining to West Ham's bid.
But in the wake of criticism from opponents of the board's plans to move West Ham United to Stratford, it has been confirmed that the club have contacted the LLDC asking if they may reveal further details of their blueprint for the stadium.
"The club remains aware of the desire of supporters to hold a poll regarding the proposed move," a statement posted on whufc.com read. "As a result, West Ham United has once more contacted the LLDC requesting the ability to release further information.
"No response has yet been received, but any response is expected to be consistent with previous requests that restate the constraints of the confidentiality agreement."
The wish amongst supporters to be consulted over a potential move was highlighted last weekend when campaign group WHU's View? handed out several thousand polling leaflets ahead of the Birmingham City match.
That was followed by the appearance of WHU's View? representatives on the BBC's local news programmes yesterday, which also carried a statement from the club confirming that supporters WILL be consulted - but only AFTER the May 21st tenancy decision has been announced.

*KUMB have been asked to point out that a comment by the club relating to the most recent meeting of the Supporters' Advisory Board (SAB) - as posted on whufc.com - stating that, "a straw poll was conducted and no supporters voted against the proposed move" was somewhat disingenuous given that the ONLY show of hands requested at the meeting in question was for those IN FAVOUR of the move.
