Decision due on ‘temporary hotel’ in Hainault for 4,200 London 2012 Olympic security staff
Councillors will decide whether a “temporary hotel” which could accommodate more than 4,200 Olympic staff in the historic Hainault Forest Country Park can go ahead.
A regulatory committee meeting is due to be held at Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford on Wednesday to discuss the controversial plans.
The temporary structure by the Snoozebox company would cover two fields and two car parks in the park off Romford Road, Hainault.
It would be made up of 250 containers providing rooms with double beds, flat screen televisions and en-suite bathrooms for about 3,000 Ministry of Defence personnel, 1,000 from security firm G4S and 200 from Snoozebox.
Redbridge Council will not disclose how much it would make on the scheme, but a spokesman previously told the Recorder: “Discussions and negotiations are ongoing between the council/Vision and Snoozebox and at this stage are confidential.
