The Commission for a Sustainable London 2012 welcomes the launch of the legacy masterplan framework.

In our role as an independent watchdog, our stakeholders and commissioners consider a sustainable legacy to be the most important aspect of London 2012. We have closely monitored the work to convene a group to develop the vision for east London, and an expert team within the London Development Agency to organise and deliver the work necessary to realise the vision. We have been impressed with the work done to date, but we would urge all those involved in the programme to open their minds to create a place that is truly the future of London and not the sum of its past.
