The 2012 Legacy Background

The London bid for the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games included bid chairman Lord Coe placing a pledge to use the events to inspire two million people to take up sport and physical activity at the heart of the bid.[8] Legacy includes sporting, economic, cultural, and environmental benefits, and aims to ensure that no "white elephants" were created by the 2012 Summer Olympics and 2012 Summer Paralympics. [9] The London Legacy Development Corporation is a mayoral development corporation responsible for the Olympic Park area.

Since the London 2012 Paralympic Games finished on 9 September 2012 the UK Government has unveiled an updated Legacy Plan.[11] Its main points include:

  • funding for elite sport until Rio 2016
  • investment to turn the Olympic site into the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
  • 20 major sporting events to UK by 2019, with more bids in progress
  • £1bn investment over the next five years in the Youth Sport Strategy, linking schools with sports clubs and encouraging sporting habits for life
  • introduction of the School Games programme to boost schools sport and county sport festivals
  • continued funding for International Inspiration, the UK's international sports development programme, to 2014.

There have been several previous legacy plans. These include:
