London Assembly to question Stadium decision makers

The London Assembly Budget Monitoring Sub-Committee will  tomorrow question two of the key decision makers associated with the London Stadium, who were in post before the London 2012 Olympics took place:

David Edmonds CBE, former Chairman, LLDC and Neale Coleman CBE, former Deputy Chairman, LLDC will both be present to give evidence to the GLA committee about why the cost of retrofitting the former Olympic Stadium rose from a budgeted £190 million to £323 million and why the London stadium’s approved business case forecasted a surplus, but it will now lose over £10 million every year for the foreseeable future.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 21 March from 2:00pm in The Chamber (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).

Members of the public and press are invited to attend in the public gallery.

The press release published by the London Assembly about the meeting is titled “The full cost of West Ham’s Stadium”

The meeting can also be viewed LIVE via webcast.

  1. “The Full Cost of West Ham’s Stadium”

    Can someone point out to these know-nothing’s that it is not West Ham’s stadium. We rent it for 25 days per year which is less than than British Athletics, who have it for longer, pay less in rent, and unlike West Ham don’t fill the place on the majority of days that they use the place, thereby depriving the owners from earning more from F&B etc.

    It’s amazing that the mayors office refers to it as West Hams stadium when actually it is his authority which owns it.

    • Yeah I said the same thing, it is that useless muppet mayor, probably trying to appear clever, I can’t think of a single policy he has delivered as Mayor, I don’t particularly like Red Ken Livingstone but he got things done, many of which Boris took the credit for.

  2. Lets not ruin a good bit of spin by telling the truth lads.
