Have Your Say on the Olympic Legacy

You still have time to have your say on the Olympic Legacy which affects the five host boroughs including Tower Hamlets. The four remaining events are as follows:

* Stratford Shopping Centre - Monday, 2 March 2009
* East Ham Leisure Centre - Wednesday, 4 March 2009
* GLA City Hall - Saturday, 7 March 2009
* Brent Cross Shopping Centre - Sunday, 8 March 2009

Details are here.

It is absolutely vital that the Olympics in 2012 create a lasting legacy, which improves the lives of everyone in Tower Hamlets, particularly through the provision of jobs, eductation and a community environment that locals are involved in and consulted on.

I wait to see how successful this is, hopefully with Boris in place, the powers that be will start listening. The work so far from this Labour Government, Labour Council, and from Ken Livingstone, is that 3% of jobs on the Olympic site are being undertaken by local residents. This is woefully inadequate.
