This is a synopsis of the planning statement prepared by London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) for the planning application for F03 bridge and associated landscape works.
The F03 bridge connection traverses the River Lea within the northern Olympic Park. The site is situated to the southern end of the northern Olympic Park, east of Waterden Road, north of the Stratford City Approach Road and to the west of the Athletes Village.
The north park contains large areas of natural landscape with a focus on ecology and is divided by the River Lea at its centre. The connection provides an important east west link across the park between Honour Lea Avenue and the Copper Box/H10 stitch.
North Park Railings
A planning application for North Park Railings was approved in June 2013 (ref. 13/00010). This application proposed the enclosure of the North Park with 1.6m high steel railings with gates at key entrances into the park. The permission requires 24 hour access routes to be maintained across the park following the lit routes.
Ecology and nature Conservation
The proposed landscape continues the parkwide biodiversity principles of creating different categories of green spaces. The proposal continues to contribute to the delivery of the Biodiversity Action Plan target of 45 hectares of new habitat.
