Vision, Mission and Values

Vision
Creating a dynamic new metropolitan centre for London.

Mission
To use the opportunity of the London 2012 Games and the creation of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to change the lives of people in east London and drive growth and investment in London and the UK, by developing an inspiring and innovative place where people want - and can afford - to live, work and visit.

How we will deliver
We work to a five year strategy which was originally published in 2015 and was updated in 2016 to reflect changes in political priorities and developments in key areas. The strategy sets out the programme of change that will be delivered in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park over the next five years, and outlines how we will deliver, in collaboration with key partners.

The strategy identifies five key business objectives that LLDC will work towards and describes how we will measure our progress.
