Olympic Stadium: another hurdle cleared


Filed: Tuesday, 28th May 2013
By: Staff Writer No.2


Planning permission has been granted for the E20 partnership's conversion plans for the Olympic Stadium.

The plans to transform the Olympic Stadium into a 54,000 seater football ground were approved by the borough of Newham's planning committee on Tuesday evening.

Included in the plans is the installation of retractable seating over the running track, the creation of hospitality facilities, the moving of concessions and toilet facilities to within the stadium turnstiles and the construction of an 84 metre span roof.

Other facilities to be constructed include club offices and ticketing facilities as well as a new stadium merchandising store.

The plans will have to be sent to Boris Johnson for the Mayor to give his final ratification before the construction work can commence. Final ratification is expected to take place in time for the work to start later during 2013.
