Community safety and social inclusion scrutiny commission
The commission is keen to assess the social inclusion aspect of the Olympic legacy, especially for those communities who live near the development. We will be hearing from London Legacy Development Corporation, the council's regeneration delivery, parks and leisure services, management companies responsible for Olympic legacy venues, and from local residents. Find out more about this review.
The commission is reviewing the social inclusion aspects of the regeneration of Tech City. The review aims to explore the impact of the growing industry on the local population, particularly in Shoreditch, and how the benefits of this economic transformation can be harnessed to improve the job prospects and life opportunities for the local population (young people in particular).
