0 Sheffield’s Olympic Legacy Park receives £4.9m funding boost

Sheffield OlympicLegacySheffield's Olympic Legacy Park (OLP) - the largest London 2012 legacy project - has won £4.9m in infrastructure funding.

The investment has been provided by the Sheffield City Region Investment Funds (SCRIF), which comprises government funding and contributions from local authorities and private sector partners.

Money will be invested in creating the public realm, including all green spaces, drainage, utilities and spaces for developing health and sport innovations outside.

Work is due to begin in September and will be completed by March 2017. Sheffield-based companies - ARES Landscape Architects, ARUP and Turner & Townsend - will deliver the project.
