Answer for Crystal Palace - neighbourhood plan

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Given the political landscape of the area surrounding the Crystal Palace site, together with the London Borough of Bromley, I have initiated cross boundary discussions with the five boroughs mentioned. It is my intention to support this with detailed work that considers the impact and opportunity created by the development for the area irrespective of political boundaries. This work has been initiated but is yet to be scoped in detail.

I have delegated consideration of the planning application to Sir Edward Lister, my Chief of Staff and Deputy Mayor for Planning.
