DC Casebook: Leisure and Tourism - Olympics space need favours hotel plan

A 47-bedroom hotel has been allowed in the Greenwich waterfront area after an inspector decided that it would help meet demand for accommodation for the Olympic Games in 2012.

The site was close to the O2 Arena. The inspector accepted that the unitary development plan supported more hotel space but noted that only 18 on-site parking bays would be provided. Given the site's accessibility by public transport, he agreed that this would not undermine highway safety or lead to excessive on-street parking. The scheme would contribute to the need for accommodation to support the games, he held.

Inspector: Leslie Coop; Written representations
