Answered By: 
The Mayor

There have been two meetings between CPFC 2010 and my Sports Commissioner, Kate Hoey, and members of the GLA Sports Unit. My view is that it is encouraging to see people coming forward with possible solutions for the future of Crystal Palace and I welcome their interest.

There was a preliminary meeting between the Crystal Palace Football Club, the Chief Executive of Croydon Council and the Deputy Chief Executive of the LDA in September 2010.
