Regeneration of the capital's stadiums will come under scrutiny today, in a discussion at the London Assembly on whether local communities benefit from investment in major venues.
The Regeneration Committee will look at what more can be done to ensure that Londoners benefit from investment in stadiums in their local area.
There will be a particular focus on the future of the Olympic Stadium in Stratford which has benefited from multi-million pound investment.
The Northumberland Development Project and Tottenham Hotspur's has announced the newest wave of jobs as part of the stadium regeneration programme. The first 200 jobs will be at the Sainsbury's superstore which is part of the project and will go to local people within a 3 mile radius
The club will use its unique appeal as the driving force behind ensuring this. It's just the start of employment drive through the NDP, with 65 apprenticeships already in place or due to be filled within the next 12 months.
The London Assembly's new regeneration Committee meets for the first time today.
They'll debate how the capital should benefit best from regeneration.
Members will also quiz experts on how current funding streams can deliver results.
