It has been confirmed that the equestrian element of the 2012 Olympic Games will take place in London's Greenwich Park.

After a five-hour meeting, Greenwich Council's planning committee voted 10-2 in favour of the application submitted by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG), albeit with 40 conditions on LOCOG's preparations.

Pressure group NOGOE (No to Greenwich Olympic Equestrian Events)
spoke at the meeting, citing concerns about ecology, archeology, transport and lack of amenity to local people. Supporters of the venue included Will Connell and Andrew Finding.
