Welcome

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in the role of London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) Chair.

LLDC has achieved an incredible amount since its creation in 2012. We have transformed Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park into a thriving new part of the city, working and delivering with the talented and diverse communities around us.

Thousands of homes have been built on the Park and in the surrounding area, two new business districts with thousands of jobs have opened, and world-class sporting venues such as London Stadium and the London Aquatics Centre are open year-round with a full programme of events for elite athletes and amateurs alike. We are one of London’s top destinations, attracting millions of visitors from around the world each year, providing a valuable resource for local communities, and generating millions of pounds of economic benefit for the capital.

We are proud to have delivered the greatest Olympic and Paralympic legacy. We have regeneration projects and major event organisers from around the world coming to the Park to see how we have delivered a lasting legacy in partnership with local people.

Now, almost two decades on from London being awarded the Games, we are ready for the next chapter of our story.  Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will undergo significant change over the coming years as more homes are built, and as East Bank, the UK’s most exciting and ambitious culture and education district in a generation, becomes fully operational. The reputation of the Park as a destination of global significance will be further cemented, bringing with it the potential to stimulate further public and private sector investment, drive innovation, and create yet more opportunity for the communities of east London.

Following the return of LLDC’s Town Planning powers at the end of 2024 to the local boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest, LLDC will be a smaller organisation but no less dynamic and ambitious in its objectives. It will focus on driving growth and inward investment to east London; overseeing world class venues and the long-term estate and commercial management of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park; realising the continuing delivery of legacy and inclusive economy aims; and driving delivery of high standard residential developments, including through two joint venture partnerships which will operate for the next ten years.

As Chair you are responsible for leadership of the LLDC Board, ensuring its effectiveness on all aspects of its role. The Board is responsible for setting strategic direction and overall policy within a framework set by the Mayor of London, providing leadership and support to the organisation, offering oversight and scrutiny and monitoring performance and corporate governance.

We remain committed to better reflect the communities we serve in east London and are keen to hear from candidates who share this passion and whose work and lived experience reflects this.

We look forward to receiving your application.

Yours faithfully,

Strategic Resourcing Team, Greater London Authority
