Securing Ecology Objectives for the Olympic Park

Securing Ecology Objectives for the Olympic Park

This report explains the purpose, implementation, benefits and lessons learned of the Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) within the Olympic Park.
Construction of the Olympic Park venues resulted in a loss of 45 hectares of existing nature conservation sites. The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games planning permissions placed an obligation not only to provide a new 45 hectare area, but also to improve the quality of habitat being delivered.
The Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) uniquely provided the context for delivery of this new habitat and demonstrated it can be done for other major redevelopment sites.

This was interesting to read - I hope that all cities chosen to host the Olympics in the future will follow this example.
