KPMG reviews three Olympic venues for viability

KPMG has been brought in to evaluate three 2012 Olympic venues for their viability

The Department for
Culture, Media and Sport
(DCMS) has confirmed it has called in
KPMG to review plans for the equestrian,
shooting and basketball 2012 Olympic venues to see whether they will deliver
value for money.

Plans are for the 23,000-seater stadium for equestrian events at Greenwich
Park and the 7500-seat shooting facilities at the Royal Artillery Barracks in
Woolwich to be dismantled after the games, BBC News reports.

The 12,000-seat basketball arena to be built in the main Olympic Park, which
will only stage the qualifying rounds, has also been earmarked for relocation.

‘This is one of a number of reviews of Olympic venues to ensure they are
being delivered as efficiently as possible and meet both games and long-term
legacy requirements,’ a DCMS spokesman said.
