TfL is preparing to submit an application to the Planning Inspectorate for a 'Development Consent Order' (DCO) that would provide the necessary powers to build and operate the proposed new crossing. The current programme envisages the DCO application being submitted during 2015. Prior to that there will be further consultation with the public and stakeholders on the proposals which will include details of any scheme impacts and proposals for mitigation. The next round of consultation will take place this autumn.
