The naming yesterday of the five new neighbourhoods that will eventually take shape on the Olympic Park in east London is the first high-profile test of both localism and the much-vaunted Olympic legacy effect. The result will please Little Englanders; but it also reveals how tritely those in important positions think about qualities of place. Andrew Altman, head of the Olympic Park Legacy Company, claims the public – 2,000 neighbourhood names were suggested in an open competition – "has given a new piece of London its identity".
