London 2012: Olympic Park legacy under City Hall spotlight

Olympic legacy chiefs are today (Wednesday) being quizzed about the future of the 2012 site in Stratford which will be transformed into five new neighbourhoods after the athletes have left this summer.

The neighbourhoods will boast thousands of new homes along with business and leisure facilities.

City Hall Assembly Members will question Olympic Park Legacy Company Executive Directors Duncan Innes (Real Estate), Paul Brickell (Regeneration and Community partnerships) and Kathryn Firth, Chief of Design, about the long-term regeneration of the Park from 2013 to 2031.

Also under the spotlight will be how the housing offer will be marketed; the employment opportunities and social legacy; the anticipated return on the public investment in the site; and the impact of the impending Mayoral Development Corporation.

The public Planning and Housing Committee meeting is taking place from 10am in the Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1). It can also be viewed via webcast.
