This study assesses the cost and benefit implications of bidding for and staging the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London in 2012. The study was undertaken by Arup in association with Insignia Richard Ellis and was commissioned by a ‘Stakeholders Group’ comprising the Government, the Mayor of London (GLA), the London Development Agency (LDA), the British Olympic Association (BOA), UK Sport, and Sport England. The brief, issued in January 2002 required the analysis to include an assessment of the physical development requirements of the Games, including sports facilities, infrastructure, the wider economic and other impacts, legacy issues, an assessment of the bidding process, and the implications of not bidding for 2012 but delaying until a later date.
