College plan for post-games site

Land-based training centre could be built as part of 2012 Olympic development

A new land-based training centre could be built in the Thames Gateway area as part of the 2012 Olympic development. Five London boroughs proposed a new college: Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Waltham Forest, New-ham and Greenwich. The college would be in the Cross Bridge Park area, which spans the Thames near Dagenham. It would be housed in buildings that had been used for the Olympics. Capel Manor College head Madeline Hall said she would be involved in discussions, but there is no intention of losing the site in Enfield. She said: “We hope to expand rather than close existing facilities.” She said consultations were needed with the ODPM and the London Development Agency. # Latest signings to HW’s campaign for the Olympics to be a horticultural showcase include Windsor Castle senior groundsman Stephen Singers.
