Boost for Olympic Park redevelopment

A key milestone has been reached in the project to redevelop the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The London Legacy Development Corporation board approved a Section 106 agreement that will ensure developers include millions of pounds of infrastructure works.

Commitments within the Section 106 agreement include £17M of transport improvements; three new schools and nine nurseries; three health centres; a library and community centres.

London mayor Boris Johnson chaired the board for the first time as the focus turned to the legacy of the London 2012 Games.

He said: “After staging the greatest Games ever there is not a moment to lose in delivering the legacy we have promised Londoners.

“During my mayoralty I intend to remain at the forefront of this drive to create London’s newest district that will benefit the whole of our great city over the coming decades.”
