Train4TradeSkills News: What does the future hold for Olympic Park post-2012?

Plans submitted to transform the Olympic Park when the 2012 Olympic Games in London finishes.

The Olympic Park Legacy Company has submitted proposals to transform the Olympic Park when the Olympic Games in London finishes next year.

The 5,000 page planning application documents the plans detailing how the Olympic Park could look after the 2012 Games. The plans include transforming the Olympic Park and the Athletes Village into 8,000 new homes.

The plans include building these new homes in five new neighbourhoods on the site, each with a host of community facilities, shops, schools and parks.

Andrew Altman, the chief executive of the Olympic Park Legacy Company, said in a statement:

“As one of the most important housing developments in London’s history, these five neighbourhoods will stitch together the surrounding communities of a formerly isolated area through new homes, schools, shops, parks, infrastructure and jobs.”

The future of the Olympic Stadium has already been dealt with, with West Ham set to move in after the Olympics, and this project would also be a welcome boost for the construction industry.

The Olympics has already created in excess of 12,000 construction jobs and the fact that 8,000 new homes could be built if the plans are approved will only add to that number, which can only be a good thing.
