London 2012 legacy report due for cabinet discussion

London 2012's legacy for Windsor and Maidenhead is the subject of a report due before the cabinet on Wednesday.

The 45-page document covers the work carried out in the run up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and the resulting achievements and benefits the events brought.

It also documents the ways the council hopes to continue to maximise them.

Cllr Simon Dudley, cabinet member for the 2012 Games, said: "The legacy was always going to be difficult to secure and calculate but we have a clutch of benefits that will undoubtedly remain in place."

According to the report it is estimated an extra 300,000 people visited the area during the Games weeks.

More than £200,000 was invested in upgrading walking and cycle routes around Eton Dorney.

And post-Games leisure projects in the borough have been given a £1m council cash boost.

The meeting is set to take place at Windsor Guildhall from 7.30pm.
