Olympic Games

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the Government’s latest estimate is for the numbers of homes to be built on the Olympic Park; and how many will contribute to the Government’s building targets for zero carbon homes. (115481)

The Olympic Village is expected to provide in the order of 4,400 homes, subject to final International Olympic Committee requirements for the London 2012 Games themselves and subject to detailed planning. The final number of homes to be developed across the whole of the Olympic Park will be much larger, but will be determined at a later stage and will be subject to planning policies and guidance. The ODA’s Sustainable Development Strategy will be published later this month, and will be providing information on the ODA’s proposals for carbon reduction.
