Executive summary

Approval is sought for the release and expenditure of up to £50,000 of funding to provide consultancy services to carry out a regeneration and urban design study that explores future opportunities for the Crystal Palace and its surrounding town centres in light of the potential new designation of Crystal Palace as an Strategic Outer London Development centre with a strategic function around leisure/ tourism/ arts/ culture/ sports and the emerging development proposals within the park boundary.

£25,000 for this work has been secured and its use agreed in principle following a bid for funding to the 2013/14 central programme budget. The remaining £25,000 will be funded from the 2014/15 Crystal Palace revenue budget.
