More green space at Stratford’s Olympic Park
Revision of the space now includes more open green space
Updated plans to the Olympic Park have increased the amount of open green space for Newham residents to use in a change from the original plans by the London Development Agency.
The new layout of the one mile road cycle circuit in the north of the future Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will now include an extra 1.8 hectares of uninterrupted green space and 144m of usable riverside.
MP for East Ham Stephen Timms said: “I am glad that so many residents have taken the opportunity to have their say in the consultation.
“I welcome the opening up to the public of an extra 1.8 hectares of open space, and I am looking forward immensely to being able to ride the top-class cycle circuit which will be created.”

The public consultation was also responsible for other key changes such as the revision of the location of the cycle circuit which will now be on the opposite bank of the River Lea because it was feared that Newham residents would be cut off from green space in the Parkland where it was planned to be previously.
