- What economic and social changes have occurred in Newham?
- The big promise of the 2012 Olympic Games was a lasting legacy to help regenerate one of the most deprived parts of London.
- However, the Athletes’ Village (now East Village) has already been converted into new homes
- London spent £9.3 billion of public money on the Games so people expected to see long-term social and economic benefits
- It is likely to take until 2030 for the process to be completed, so it is still too early to judge how successful the changes will be.
- In 2012 the LLDC was set up to plan regeneration after the Games
- By 2030, another five new residential communities are planned, with a further 8,000 new homes, turning Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park into a new part of London.
