Boris Johnson plans Olympic Legacy with new homes

The 2012 Olympic Games in London is only 17 months away and decisions are being made surrounding the legacy of the Games, when the tourists disappear and all the furore and commotion in the area has died down.

With the Olympic Stadium issue sorted and West Ham the new owners, The Mayor of London Boris Johnson is looking for developers to deliver 800 new homes on the Olympic Park after the 2012 Games have finished, for the first phase.

The Olympic Park Legacy Company want the area to become a hotbed for families. A total of 8,000 homes will be built across the whole park, 35% of which will be affordable housing.

The plans also include building community buildings, nurseries, a community centre and a new school on the five neighbourhoods.

Four of the areas will be on the north-west of the Olympic Park, whereas the fifth area will be on the north-east, between the velodrome and the Athletes Village.

The work is expected to begin in 2013 and will add to the number of construction jobs that have already been created as a result of the Olympic Games in London.
