Duo join Olympic legacy board

  • Comment
The former chief executive of Sheffield City Council, Sir Bob Kerslake, and the mayor of Hackney, Jules Pipe, have both bagged places on the Olympic legacy board of advisors.

Cllr Pipe and Sir Bob, now the chief executive of the Homes & Communities Agency, take their places on the board alongside former mayor Ken Livingstone’s Olympic advisor, Neale Coleman, and London Development Agency chairman Harvey McGrath.

The Board will be chaired by deputy chairman of the Carphone Warehouse, David Ross, who was the mayor’s nominee to the Board of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Other board members include Precise Media Group chairman David Gregson and executive trustee of the Grosvenor Estate, Jeremy Newsum.

Mr Ross said: “The long-term future of the Olympic Park is probably the most important part of the London 2012 arrangements, but also the most complex.”

The Mayor is asking the new Board to consider proposals for establishing a separate vehicle to secure development and investment, in particular from the private sector, in regeneration in and around the Olympic Park. The mayor hopes to establish the vehicle in 2009.
