Chobham Manor, East Wick, Marshgate Wharf, Sweetwater and Pudding Mill have been announced as the winning names for the 5 neighbourhoods to be built on the site of London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park after 2012.
Over 2,000 names were entered into the Olympic Park Legacy Company’s ‘Your Park, Your Place’ competition, with suggestions taking into account neighbourhood designs, the Games and the areas’ historical uses.
Olympic Legacy Minister and competition panel judge Bob Neill said:
“This competition has been a fantastic opportunity for local communities to take a real sense of ownership of the Olympic Park.
“The names we have chosen today were put forward by members of the public who have clearly taken great pride in helping to shape the legacy of London 2012.
“The British public have put their stamp on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, something that will leave a tangible legacy for generations to come.”
