Boris Johnson and Lord Coe have been questioned about what lessons can be learned from the Olympics.
The Mayor and the London 2012 Chairman were facing questions from the London Assembly.
Toby Sadler reports.
London Mayor Boris Johnson hopes to provide work on the Olympic site for local people.
London Mayor Boris Johnson: "We will deliver as we promised for a long time, 7,000 homes in the Olympic Park."
Boris Johnson said: "Londoners have to be a little bit patient; they have to recognise that this thing (the Olympic Stadium) was not built to be the kind of omni-purpose, world class stadium capable of hosting premiership football that it should be and there's a very clear choice for us all.
"Do we want to rush ahead with a reopening or do we want to go on with the adaptations that will deliver a world class facility?"
London Mayor Boris Johnson says there will be a possible 2016 reopening of the Olympic Stadium, saying it was not built to cater for everything and it will take time to do roof seats etc.
London Mayor Boris Johnson told the London Assembly that bus tours will start running across the Olympic Park. He also said there will be 35 per cent new houses in five new neighbourhoods around the Olympic Park and they will be affordable homes.
Lord Coe says London Mayor Boris Johnson is right to take time over deciding the future of the Olympic Stadium.
Lord Deighton outlines commitment to affordable ticketing.
Asked about Olympic Games legacy at the London Assembly, Lord Coe said: "We need to create space outside the school timetable for sport."
Lord Coe said to the London Assembly: "We did everything possible to fill all the venues". Lord Coe also defended Olympic ticket allocation, saying 76% were in the hands of UK people.
