West Ham's Olympic Stadium move: Public's views invited West Ham's Olympic Stadium move: Public's views invited

Members of the public have been invited to share their thoughts on the transfer of football club West Ham United to the Olympic Stadium.

The centre piece of the 2012 Olympic Games is to be converted into a 54,000-seater stadium for use by permanent tenant West Ham, alongside athletics in the summer months and entertainment.

The Greater London Authority's Regeneration Committee is investigating stadia-led regeneration in London, drawing on examples from the capital and beyond to explore lessons learnt and best practices to engage with communities impacted by refurbished or new stadia.

The committee will:

• Review evidence from past and current stadia-led regeneration schemes to understand the factors that will enable the Olympic Stadium to support a regeneration legacy.
• Assess the extent to which the mayor’s objectives in the London Plan for stadia-led regeneration are being met and how they could be improved.
• Examine partnerships between football clubs and public bodies (boroughs and the GLA) and identify strategies that enable the effective delivery of local regeneration.

The committee would like to hear the views of the public on how stadia regeneration has made a difference to their lives, and of any impact on communities.

Those interested in sharing their views should write to the Regeneration Committee, London Assembly, City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London SE1 2AA or email: scrutiny@london.gov.uk
