The Mayor

The ODA is planning to build a wind turbine on the Eton Manor site in the north of the Olympic Park. There is also an opportunity for the London Borough of Hackney to install a second wind turbine on East Marsh to provide further renewable electricity to the local area. The London Borough of Hackney is exploring this opportunity and is leading on public consultation work with the local community.
