London Legacy Development Corporation
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has intends to appoint Sir Peter Hendy CBE as the new chair of the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC). Sir Peter has more than 42 years’ experience of working in the transport and infrastructure sector in London. He has been chair of Network Rail since 2015 – a position he will retain – and was previously Commissioner of Transport for London for nine years. The London Legacy Development Corporation was established by the previous mayor, Boris Johnson, to build on the success of the 2012 Olympic Games and drive forward regeneration, growth and investment in east London. It has full planning powers and works closely with the four neighbouring boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. Sir Peter will be tasked with overseeing the continued growth of the park and its venues, which have seen more than 15m visitors since they re-opened, firmly establishing it in the area as a major visitor destination. He will also be charged with pushing ahead with the delivery of new neighbourhoods to meet the mayor’s long-term strategic aim of 50 per cent affordable homes, as well as embedding a new cultural and education dstrict in the heart of the park. One of Sir Peter’s first priorities will be to assist LLDC in how it responds and takes forward the recommendations of the mayor’s investigation into the finances of the London stadium, which are expected later this year.
