Lorraine Baldry, chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority’s (ODA) planning committee, was made an OBE for services to planning and regeneration.

Jerome Frost, head of design and regeneration for the ODA, was made an OBE for services to regeneration.

Lawrence Waterman, head of health and safety at the ODA, was made an OBE for services to occupational health and safety.

Loraine Martins, formerly head of equality, inclusion, employment and skill at the ODA, was made an MBE.

The ODA is the public body responsible for developing and building the new venues and infrastructure for the Games and their use after 2012.

Sir John Armitt, chairman of the ODA, said: “This is a reflection of the terrific work done by so many people to turn the London 2012 dream into reality – an Olympic Park that will host the world’s best athletes this summer, then be transformed into a new district for London, in one of the UK’s most deprived areas.

“The stunning sports venues are at the heart of a regeneration project that will leave a legacy for generations to come – all achieved with an impressive health and safety record and involving all sections of the community.”
