Question

I am concerned that the current consultation on plans for the National Sports Centre in Crystal Palace Park is only planned to run for three weeks, until the end of October. This is not sufficient time for such an important project and is not best practice for consultations. Why was it agreed to only consult for such a short time and will you consider extending this period to enable as many local residents and centre users to have their say?

It is clear from the extensive dialogue on all forms of media that people are fully aware of the consultation, engaged with it and keen to participate. With over 1000 responses so far, I am confident that the current timescale will enable people to participate fully and let us know their views.
