Your response to question 341 / 2007 states, "various options for cooling the accommodation in the Olympic Village will be investigated as part of the design of the residential development". If air conditioning is to be installed in the Athletes' Village, why does the Energy Statement in the Olympic Planning Application show an energy consumption of zero for cooling in the Athletes' Village?

The ODA have confirmed that there are no plans to include air conditioning in the residential units at the athletes' village during Games or Legacy. Some related buildings, such as catering and laundry, may require air conditioning during Games time only. This is for operational and health and safety reasons.
