To ask the Minister for the Olympics what steps are being taken to ensure that housing built for the London 2012 Olympics will be available for use by local people after the games. (287468)

After the games the Olympic village, as planned from the outset, will be converted into a mix of private and social housing available for take-up by local people and others.

Nearly 50 per cent. of the 2,818 homes will be provided as affordable by Triathlon Homes, a consortium which includes a Stratford-based registered landlord, East Thames Housing Group.

The allocation of affordable homes will be agreed between Triathlon Homes and the London borough of Newham in the context of national housing policies and the London Mayor’s housing strategy.
