Olympic stadium

Olympic legacy health check

04 September 2019

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) is responsible for managing the physical legacy of the 2012 Olympic Games. [1] This means planning, developing and managing the Olympic Park and its venues. The LLDC is directly accountable to Londoners and the Mayor of London through an independent board.


The Corporation also has responsibility for developing the Olympic Park as a community where people work and live. By 2030 the LLDC plans for 10,000 new homes in the park and five new neighbourhoods.  However, some issues are ongoing:


  • Continuing losses at the London Stadium – despite an impressive series of events during the summer
  • Risks for the East Bank development
  • Modest delivery of affordable housing
  • Planning application for the Madison Square Garden Sphere


Tomorrow, the London Assembly will consider:


  • The LLDC’s key achievements over the last 12 months
  • How the LLDC is changing as an organisation as its role evolves
  • The continuing funding required for LLDC


The guests are:


  • Lyn Garner, Chief Executive, London Legacy Development Corporation
  • Sir Peter Hendy CBE, Chair, London Legacy Development Corporation


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


The meeting will take place on Thursday, 5 September 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 LIVE via webcast or YouTube
