The Essex 2012 Legacy team was established in 2006 to lead a partnership of organisations to secure a legacy in Essex, following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Legacy Team at Essex County Council has created unique partnerships with, The Salvation Army, The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games, Visit Essex and Active Essex as well as Borough, District and City Councils across Essex.
With the help of its community partners and a variety of projects across the County, the Essex Legacy team aim to inspire and encourage people in sporting activity. In addition, through education we are keen to instil in schools the Olympic and Paralympic values of respect and inspiration.
Hadleigh Farm and Country Park Legacy
One of the Legacy’s main projects is the development the Hadleigh Farm Olympic Mountain Bike course and Country Park to make it more accessible for the public. Ultimately creating an enjoyable place for locals and visitors alike to walk, ride and make the most of the sites’ natural beauty, historical and sporting features. This project is due for completion in Spring 2015.
