Community give feedback on Olympic Park neighbourhood

The local community met project managers to give feedback on plans for one of the Olympic Park neighbourhoods.

The last of three consultation events took place at Chandos East community centre in Stratford on February 4 showcasing designs for Chobham Manor.

The development, to be situated between East Village and the Lee Valley Velopark, boasts 850 homes as well as shopping and health facilities.

Sebastian Balcombe, planning manager with developers Taylor Wimpley, said: “We were delighted to see so many people from the local area take the time to visit our events.

“We wanted to hear what local people wanted, and we had some excellent and constructive feedback from a wide cross-section of the local community.
