Regeneration of the Lower Lee Valley
The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have opened up even greater possibilities by reinventing the southern, more urbanised part of the Lee Valley. As the owner of two London 2012 venues on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) and 35% of the parklands on it, the Authority has been working closely with the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) to establish QEOP as one of the most important visitor destinations in the UK.
The Authority sits on joint working groups made up of the LLDC, local authorities and other private and public sector stakeholders to deliver a QEOP which will be at the heart of the capital’s newest and most dynamic urban district made up of world class sport and leisure facilities, an exciting events programme, state-of-the-art industries and thriving neighbourhoods.
The Authority is also playing a pivotal role as part of the London Stansted Cambridge Consortium to aid the economic development and regeneration of the London-Stansted-Cambridge corridor.
The park covers large parts of the corridor, which stretches from QEOP and surrounding areas in the Lower Lee Valley up to Harlow and Stansted and on to Cambridge. It has been identified as having the most dynamic and exciting economy in the country with the potential to grow even further.
The Authority’s venues, events programme and open spaces will help attract increased visitor numbers to the corridor and enhance the lives of those living within it.
The consortium is made up of district councils, London boroughs, private bodies and national government.
