What plans do you and the London Legacy Development Corporation have in place to ensure that any Community Land Trust on the Olympic Park site is owned by local people, and does not take the form of a "government land trust"?

The Legacy Corporation has commissioned a set-up strategy and implementation plan for a potential Community Land Trust as a pilot for its first development on the Park in Chobham Manor. The potential model for a Community Land Trust is under development, but whatever form it takes, it will be a community organisation that will deliver permanently affordable housing. If successful, the pilot model could be rolled out in other developments across the Park.
