Asked Of: 
The Mayor


You raise the issue of Crystal Palace in your November report.

The LDA has been active in funding schemes to review the future of the Sports centre and in brining in the one-way system in Upper Norwood.

Residents locally ask though what role the Mayor can play in improving a key London asset.

Crystal Palace Park currently suffers from a lack of adequate access routes from the local district centre. There is no safe and attractive route for local people to enter the park by foot. What can the GLA do to secure plans to develop the access facilities to Crystal Palace Park in order to encourage pedestrian access, rather than cars, and to provide a better facility for the local residents?

Crystal Palace Park is owned by Bromley Council. Access issues are entirely a matter for them. I understand that most of the park is now publicly accessible and I will be urging the Council to ensure that it remains so. .
