Greenwich Park given planning consent to host Olympic equestrian events

25 Mar 10 Greenwich Park has been given the planning green light to host the equestrian and modern pentathlon events at the 2012 London Olympics.

Greenwich Park has been given the planning green light to host the equestrian and modern pentathlon events at the 2012 London Olympics.

The London Borough of Greenwich's planning committee gave approval for the use of land at Greenwich Park, the National Maritime Museum, the Old Royal Naval College and Blackheath Circus Field at a meeting on Tuesday.

The planning consent means various temporary structures to accommodate spectators will be constructed on the site in time for 2012.

Once the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games are over, the site will be restored to its former use and condition in full accordance with a Site Reinstatement Plan to be agreed by Greenwich Council, in consultation with the Royal Parks and other statutory bodies.
