Chobham Manor bidders announced

The three bidders competing to build the first neighbourhood at the site of the London 2012 Games have been named today by the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC).

East Thames and Countryside Properties, Barratt Homes and LeFrak Organisation plus Taylor Wimpey and London & Quadrant have been shortlisted from six would-be developers to build Chobham Manor, between the Athletes' Village and the VeloPark at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.

Talks will now be held with the three bidders who will have to fine-tune their proposals before they are submitted in June.

The OPLC aims to make an appointment this summer so that the first homes can be ready in 2014.
