The changes to the Olympic masterplan have been agreed by all involved with the bid-winning designs and will, according to the official line, result in no cost increases or delays.

The most significant changes:

there is to be a closer alliance between the landscaping and the existing topography of the whole Olympic Park area;

the broadcast and media centre is moving from the Stratford City plot to a site at Hackney Wick in the north-west corner of the park;

to accommodate the move of the media centre, the volleyball courts are moved off the site to Earl's Court in wast London;

the temporary basketball courts are moved to a site north-west of the stadium;

the fencing facilities are reduced to one hall rather than two and moved to a temporary site near Stratford City;

the hockey pitches are moved to a site nearer the Olympic Village; and - the cycling velodrome moves south of the A12 to make space for a new Paralympic tennis centre.
