A New East
The Mayor of London has urged the Prime Minister to build upon the legacy of the Olympic games. The Olympic Park area is witnessing a major urban regeneration. In a promotional brochure, LOGOC describe this process as a "big work" improving a large area with an unpleasant industrial past. Unfinished work remains, such as addressing water purification and soil detoxification. For displaced residents, the construction of the Park is a sign of change and for some of them it's difficult. Despite numerous local luxury developments, some residents have been displaced, losing their community and finding themselves in uncomfortable housing. Though there's nothing wrong with a successful Olympics. However the price that's been paid by locals should also be remembered.
