Issues remain for Greenwich Park campaigner


In the latest of BBC London's 2012 Lives series, Sue McNeil, who has campaigned against the use of Greenwich Park for the Olympic Equestrian Events, explains what issues she still has with the use of the Park.

In response to the issues raised by Sue in her film, Olympic Organisers LOCOG said:

"LOCOG received planning approval for the work it needs to do at Greenwich Park in 2010 after a full local consultation process. All the works that we are doing are clearly listed in the planning application.

"This year we will be submitting further detailed plans for the test event this summer and the Olympic and Paralympic events in 2012. This will include a spectator management plan, and a waste management plan which includes arrangements for the disposal of animal waste. Further consultation will also take place about the proposed designated roads for the Olympic Route Network.

"Closures to the park and disruption will be kept to a minimum and we will be organising more events this year to explain our plans in more detail. The Games coming to Greenwich is a huge opportunity for local businesses in the area, and our research has shown us the public support for the Games is high amongst local residents."
