London 2012

What more to say about the Olympics? In Southwark the answer is a lot.
Our vision was to maximise for the people of Southwark the opportunities, experiences, delights and long term benefits that would come to the borough from London 2012.
The overall 2012 planning took years and it is difficult to believe that this unique experience is now over.
However, we were determined to ensure that we examine and assess all the activities of the Southwark Olympic programme, building on the full range of legacies and ensuring the benefits for our residents would not melt away as the excitement dies down.
Contributing to this goal are:
  • Promotion of health and well-being with new public health powers from next April
  • Opportunities for young people, new sports facilities
  • Events bringing communities closer together
  • Enabling members of the communities to promote their talents and achievements have all contributed to this legacy
With the well-being of the community as our goal, enabling all this to happen reflects the core work of the council.
