Answer for Crystal Palace Park

Answered By:

Crystal Palace Park is owned by Bromley Council and its future is largely a matter for them. However, given the strategic location of the park - between 5 London boroughs - I have been participating in discussions with other public sector stakeholders to try and find a long term sustainable regeneration strategy for the Park. To achieve this, the first step is to ensure that the Athletics Stadium remains open and the NSC is replaced with a modern, suitable facility. To assist this, the LDA has funded feasibility work and I have committed myself to playing a role in ensuring that happens. .
