Flat to rent in London may be boosted by Games legacy

Flat to rent in London may be boosted by Games legacyThe popularity of property to rent in London may receive a boost from the legacy of the 2012 Olympic Stadium in Stratford if it is kept as an athletics venue, former stars of the sport have argued.

A group of British Olympians including Dame Kelly Holmes, Daley Thompson, Steve Cram and Roger Black have used an open letter to urge the Olympic Park Legacy Company to retain the athletics track at the stadium.

Of the two bids for use of the venue after the Olympics, one of them - by Tottenham Hotspur - would envisage the club tearing up the track and making the venue a football-specific stadium.

By contrast the other bidding football club - West Ham United - would retain the track, which would mean those renting in Newham would be able to enjoy both sports.

The issue was raised at Prime Minister's Questions today (December 15th) by Tottenham MP David Lammy, who urged him to oppose the move of the club from his constituency to Stratford.

Mr Cameron refused to take sides on the matter, but said the venue will be "a fantastic stadium of which I hope one football club will take advantage".
