Published September 2011

There are ambitious regeneration aspirations associated with the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games including: to transform the heart of East London (DCMS, 2007) and to give the communities hosting the Games the same chances as residents in other London Boroughs (Host Boroughs, 2009).

This report assesses the planning and delivery of the physical regeneration legacy associated with the 2012 Games. The report focuses on projects in East London and is based on a combination of primary and secondary research. Primary research involved interviews with individuals representing key organisations involved in the project. Secondary research involved a comprehensive review of academic research and official London 2012 reports.
