The 2012 Olympics were awarded to London. The majority of events will be held in specially built stadiums within the London Borough of Newham.

THAT IS NOT THE RIGHT ANSWER DO YOU KNOW WHY BECAUSE IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT QUESTION THIS IS THE RIGHT ANSWER BELOW US IN CAPITALS.

NEWHAM WAS CHOSEN BECAUSE IT IS A RIGHT DUMP AND WE WANTED TO MAKE IT BETTER BY HAVING THE OLYMPICS THERE.

. The chosen area is in the 1% of the Most Deprived in England. Holding the Olympics in that area would provide a much needed boost to some of the city's most deprived areas.

There are many places in Newham that could easily be bought at a low price and then easily cleared and built into various sites for the Olympics in 2012. There is a lot of wasteland where there is nothing to clear and the land is flat and easy to build on. It is very cheap to buy and lots of space to build stadiums onto. Many parts of Newham are old and run down. There are many old Garages and warehouses that are old, battered and not in use anymore. These will be extremely cheap to buy and would improve the environment quality in the area around it. Also it will not be any problem for any of the locals and they would be happy to get rid of it as it is not very pleasant to look at. There are many traveller sites for Gypsies. You could buy them cheaply and also there homes are not permanent and they could easily move. There are lots of abandoned houses that people are trying to sell off very cheaply. Knocking these down would create more space for car parks or stadiums.

Also, putting the Olympic site in Newham will improve the area's depravedness. The Olympic site will provide at least 9,000 knew jobs and 4,000 new homes for the area, which has an unemployment rate of 11.7%.

If you look at how many people live in council houses, the rate is a lot higher in that area. Also a very high amount of people live in flats, maisonettes or apartments. As well only 51.0% of Newham's GCSE students got grades A*- C. There is an extreme amount of crime in Newham. There is 33.5 vehicle crimes, 32.7 violence against people crimes, 10.5 street crimes, 8.0 Residential burglaries and 1.8 sexual offences and hopefully building the Olympic site here will help the lives of those people and get them jobs so they do not need to steal or commit crimes. Also 36.2% of the area are Economically Inactive.

However Newham has been named the second worst robbery hotspot in London. This will raise concerns about spectators' safety during the 2012 Games. Met statistics show Newham, with 2,077 offences, was the second worst borough for robberies last year. Its Stratford and New Town ward - including the international rail and Tube stations - came third in a table of London's most robbery-hit wards with 219 offences. Newham's Forest Gate South ward was also among the top 10 worst areas. The figures highlight the challenge that police will face during the Olympics.

Newham was selected as the location for the Olympic park because of lots of reasons,

The main reasons are.......

There was a high amount of abandoned land (Called brownfield sites)

That where abandoned after the Global shift [1] at the end of the industrial revolution in the 1980 after this shift manufacturing moved from England (a developed county) to developing countries because of there low cost.

It has many transport links.

It was also the 6th most deprived area out of 354 in England

It also has a high amount of Degradation [2] caused by de-industrialisation [3] and outsourcing [4]

[1]Global shift: The movement of manufacturing from developed countries to cheaper production locations in developing countries.

[2]Degradation: The social, economic and environmental decline of an area, often through de-industrialisation.
