The overall objectives for the London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games clearly outline that we must plan to achieve a sustainable legacy for London and the UK. Considering the legacy impact is therefore an integral part of our planning for the Games. A copy of these objectives will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.

For each issue, ranging from the "hard" physical legacy of the Park to the "softer" social, economic and environmental legacy, the most relevant organisation has been tasked with maximising the benefits before, during, and after the Games. In addition, an Olympic Park Legacy Group, involving all the key partners, has been set up to understand, influence and advise on proposals for the legacy of the Olympic Park.
