Proposed plan for the Herne Hill Velodrome, London.
“I am delighted to have this opportunity to present our first thoughts for redeveloping the Herne Hill Velodrome site. As work on our 2012 Olympic Velodrome nears completion this is a critical moment to secure the legacy of the 1948 venue and ensure its longterm future as a community and grassroots cycling venue. Together these two Olympic cycle centres complement each other and offer London a wonderful opportunity to re-establish itself as an important destination for track cycling.
“In our concept design we have tried to capture the ideas generated by the cycling community in responding to the campaign appeal, and respect the charm of the location and the proud heritage of the Herne Hill Velodrome. We look forward to hearing your comments on this concept proposal.”
