Waltham Forest park to be fenced off for Olympic car parking

More inspiring local news from 'the Green Olympics'!

THE council has agreed "in principle" to close a popular sports field for 16 months so that it can be used as a car park during the 2012 Olympics.

Drapers Field in Leyton, which is used by an estimated 9,000 people a month, will be shut off to the public in September 2011 and will not re-open until December 2012.

The land will be fenced off, with temporary buildings constructed and the installation of 'hard' landscaping on the floor.
