New legacy plans were revealed today with a greater emphasis on lower density housing in the post 2012 site which will be known as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The change follows fears that East London is already swamped with high-rise apartment blocks but lacks family homes.
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, said: “I am extremely pleased that there is such a focus on delivering family-sized homes in this unique, new district emerging in our city.
“As well as the desperate need in London for larger homes, I can not think of a better place for families to settle and children to grow up. It is they who will create the vibrant new communities so important for its success.
“And along with the fantastic new leisure and recreational facilities at the heart of our legacy plans, they will help make this a must-visit destination for Londoners and visitors alike.”
