Olympic Neighbourhood names revealed

Olympic Legacy Minister and competition panel judge Bob Neill said:

"This competition has been a fantastic opportunity for local communities to take a real sense of ownership of the Olympic Park.
"The names we have chosen today were put forward by members of the public who have clearly taken great pride in helping to shape the legacy of London 2012.
"The British public have put their stamp on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, something that will leave a tangible legacy for generations to come."

The winning names and their authors were:

Area 1 (north-east) – Chobham Manor
Suggested by Gary Davidson-Guild from Lambeth, London, as a reference to Chobham Manor and the Manor Garden Allotments.
Area 2 (north-west) – East Wick
Suggested by Oliver O’Brien from Hackney, London, because it is east of Hackney Wick.
Area 3 (west) – Sweetwater
Suggested by Kevin Murtagh from Reading, as a reference to the area’s former sweet factory, along with its waterways.
Area 4 (south-east) – Marshgate Wharf
Suggested by Stephen Davies from St Albans, as a reference to the original marshes in the area.
Area 5 (south) – Pudding Mill
Suggested by Dave Arquati from Wandsworth, London, after the area’s historic connection to the Pudding Mill River.
