Olympic Park Biodiversity Action Plan

This is the Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the period 2019 – 2024. The BAP aims to build on all conservation work carried out to date1, setting the direction for long-term habitat management to maintain and enhance biodiversity across the Park. This follows the approval of the BAP for 2014 – 2019 approved pursuant to Schedule 10 of the Legacy Communities Scheme (LCS) section 106 agreement.

The BAP is part of a wider set of management and maintenance documents for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. As a standalone document, it also establishes the visions, actions and priorities for biodiversity on the Park. The plan is comprised of 3 sections:

• Introduction
• Action Plans: Habitats and Species
• Action Plan: Communities

This document provides a guide for all involved in the development, management and maintenance of the Olympic Park - recognising that biodiversity plays a significant role in the management of parks and green spaces.
