London’s Olympic legacy – what happens next?

01 March 2016

This meeting took place on 2 March 2016. Read the transcript here.

The Concession Agreement between the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) and West Ham United FC for their rental of the Olympic Stadium has been of great public interest.

In December, the London Assembly agreed a motion stating the LLDC was wrong to redact the released document, and was wrong to appeal the Information Commissioner’s ruling that the document should be published in full.

The Assembly called on the LLDC to drop its appeal against the Information Commissioner’s ruling and to publish the Concession Agreement in full.

Tomorrow, the policies and work of the LLDC will be questioned by London Assembly Members..

The guests are:

  • David Goldstone CBE, Chief Executive of the London Legacy Development Corporation; and
  • David Edmonds CBE, Chairman of the London Legacy Development Corporation

The following topics will be discussed:

  • LLDC value for money
  • Outstanding and future challenges
  • Lessons to be learnt for the Old Oak Development Corporation
  • Transforming East London for housing and cycling

Following this, Assembly Members will submit motions on various topics.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 2nd March from 10.00am in The Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).

Media and members of the public are invited to attend.

The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
