Fiona Fletcher-Smith, Executive Director of Development, Enterprise and Environment

Executive summary

Approval is sought to extend the spend on consultancy services approved in ADD169 to total £55,000. This is due to extra dissemination costs, and falls within 10% variance of the procured amount.

Approval was granted by ADD169 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 a Strategic Outer London Development centre with a strategic function around leisure/ tourism/ arts/ culture/ sports and the emerging development proposals within the park boundary.
