The London Development Agency is to consult 400,000 east Londoners over plans to transform the Lower Lea Valley into the 2012 Olympic Games site.
The exercise - one of the largest carried out in the capital - aims to gather ideas from people who live and work in the area.
Residents will receive a leaflet, outlining the emerging plans. It commits the LDA to regenerating the area, regardless of the outcome of the Olympic bid, and urges local people to give their views to be directly fed back to masterplan leader, EDAW.
The consultation process will include a series of meetings in the area, in which local people can voice their concerns.
