Answer for LLDC resident board members

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Residents of the relevant local boroughs that make up Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park are directly represented on both the Board and the independent Planning Decisions Committee; the Mayor or Leader of each of the four local boroughs is a member of the LLDC Board and LLDC's independent Planning Decisions Committee has elected councillors from each of those boroughs on it and this ensures that community interests are represented. This allows communities to have direct input into all major strategic and planning decisions taken by their elected representatives, alongside experts in their fields who make up the remainder of the Board and its sub-committees.
