Olympic legacy in doubt

The long-term regeneration legacy of the 2012 Olympic Park in London has been called into question by the London Assembly’s economic development committee. In a progress report the committee concluded that without a ‘credible anchor tenant’ for the stadium, the creation of 10,000 new homes in the community, several schools and many jobs was just ‘aspirational’ and benefits may not appear for ‘many, many years’ after 2012.
