New Chamber president backs Olympic Legacy Park

7th November 2016

Sheffield's Olympic Legacy Park (OLP) has been welcomed by the city's new Chamber President.

In one of his first visits as the newly appointed President of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Darren Pearce recognised the 'huge potential' of the multi-million London 2012 legacy project. When fully operational, the 35-acre OLP, which is being developed in Attercliffe, is set to become the world's leading location for innovation in sport, health and wellbeing. Darren, who is also Centre Director at Meadowhall shopping centre, said: -The Olympic Legacy Park is a truly inspiring project. -With the recent announcement of plans to regenerate the Attercliffe area, the Olympic Legacy Park is already leading by example and embracing the huge potential for the sports, health and wellbeing agenda in our region. -The UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park and Oasis Academy Don Valley are both excellent facilities, providing innovative learning environments where young people across the region can recognise their full potential. -It was great to have the opportunity to see first-hand how the site is developing and how the Olympic Legacy Park is already putting Sheffield on the map. -From a Meadowhall perspective, the Olympic Legacy Park very much aligns with the corporate wellbeing objectives of our owners British Land. As part of an ongoing strategy with the team here at the centre, we are looking to see how we can work more with the Olympic Legacy Park to provide mutual benefit to both of these great Sheffield City Region assets.
