Plans for the future of 2012 Olympic venues have been debated by the London Assembly's Economic Development, Culture, Sport and Tourism (EDCST) Committee.

A long-term tenant for the Olympic Stadium is due to be announced early next year, although the future of the 800,000sq ft (74,322sq m) media centre is still not clear. At a committee meeting on 8 June - the first of two sessions probing the future of Olympic Park venues, members heard from a number of experts, including regeneration consultant Danny Meaney.

Pete Winkelman of MK Dons Football Club, economic development expert Dr Jim Coleman and Dr Larissa Davies of Sheffield Hallam University's Sports Industry Research Centre; were also questioned. A report put before the EDCST Committee said: "There are many aspects to the legacy, from the new housing and transport links being constructed, to the potential gains for London's tourism industry and the impact on sporting participation rates.

"Perhaps the most visible element of the legacy, however, will be the new venues being constructed and the ways in which they are used in the future." Image: Olympic Delivery Authority
