Olympic Board scraps North Greenwich Peninsula temporary venues

The Olympic Board wants to scrap its proposal to build a temporary venue on the North Greenwich Peninsula

The board which oversees the delivery of commitments to deliver the London 2012 games said it plans to use existing facilities at Wembley Arena instead, subject to the approval of the international badminton and rhythmic gymnastics federations.

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) will present the proposals to the Federation Internationale de Gymnastique this week during their World Gymnastics Championships in London, and the Badminton World Federation next week. The plans will then be presented to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) co-ordination commission in November, and to the IOC executive board for approval in December.

The Royal Artillery Barracks at Woolwich is confirmed as the venue for Olympic and Paralympic Shooting and Paralympic Archery. The Olympic Delivery Authority will submit the planning application for Woolwich in next few weeks.

The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, identified as a potential alternative London 2012 venue location due to its proximity to the Olympic Park, has been identified as a suitable location for training venues and other operations in 2012. Further details will be announced in the New Year.
