Answered By: 
The Mayor

In total, the Legacy Corporation is aiming for 35 per cent affordable housing across the Olympic Park, in line with my London Plan and based on a reasonable assumption of long-term economic stability. The level of affordable housing will vary across the five neighbourhoods to balance at the target figure.
