Residents in Newham invited to public meeting about Olympic Park plans on Monday
Residents have a chance to learn about the �292m transformation of the Olympic Park through a series of public meetings, including on Monday.
The London Legacy Development Corporation overseeing the park is inviting those living closest to the park to residents meetings to find out about the reopening of the park, job opportunities and homes.
The corporation’s interim chief executive, Dennis Hone, said: “We want local people to have all the facts about job and training opportunities, new homes and park opening dates, so they can get involved in the future of their Park.”
The park is undergoing a programme called Clear, Connect, Complete, which will see the removal of temporary venues and the park being connected to the surrounding area with new roads, cycle and foot paths.
Permanent venues, bridges and parklands will also be build before the park reopens in phases from next July as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
