Olympics news
News from the Lower Lea:

Lorraine Baldry, the chair of the LTGDC, has been unveiled as also the chair of the new Olympic Planning Committee. The rest of the committee consists of a somewhat odd group of people - basically the portfolio holder councillors from the five boroughs, plus some other randoms (William Hodgson, a Hackney-based architect - anyone heard of him?!). Full list:
David Taylor, co-founder of Silvertown Quays Limited, in the role of deputy chairman (an ODA board member as well as Baldry)
Rofique Ahmed, councillor with Tower Hamlets Council
Conor McAuley, councillor with Newham Council
Geoff Taylor, councillor with Hackney Council
Terry Wheeler, councillor with Waltham Forest
Mike Appleton, director with regeneration company Cibitas
Celia Carrington, deputy chief executive of Swindon Council
William Hodgson, a Hackney-based architect
Janice Morphet, visiting professor of Planning at the Bartlett
Dru Vesty, board member of the LTGDC

And the ODA and L&CR have announced the developer shortlist for the non-retail part of Stratford City, which was taken back under direct LCR control after the unseemly scrap earlier this summer:
Bouygues, leading a consortium including Barratt Homes
Lend Lease, leading a consortium including East Thames Group, First Base and Crosby Homes
Royal Bank of Scotland, leading a consortium including Bellway Homes, Gladedale and Kier.

And impacting on both these pieces of news is the story that Newham is arguing with the ODA about who should determine planning applications for projects that impact on the legacy and areas outside the park: i.e. Stratford. Basically I reckon its a fight about who controls the s106 contributions.
