With the 2012 Games fast approaching, now is a good moment for planners, politicians andregeneration experts to reflect on the very initial aims of the Olympic Legacy, and the challengesinvolved in creating a whole new area of city and the new communities that will reside there.The audience will be made of a mixture of regeneration experts, community and private sectorstakeholders and informed journalists.
The event will be under Chatham House rules.
