Question

Do you agree with me, and local community stakeholders, that a cross-borough neighbourhood plan for the wider Crystal Palace area would be hugely beneficial to this area which has suffered from being fragmented across several administrative boundaries?

Answered By:

As you are aware the GLA has commissioned an area study that is designed to assist the GLA, boroughs and community stakeholders obtain an overview of the wider area. One area of work within this modest study is looking at what is happening on the ground in the area so that future plans for the area can benefit from and evolve from organisations already operating in the area and opportunities that have already been identified. I understand that there is some interest in a neighbourhood plan but that there is also enthusiasm for exploring other mechanisms to work across borough boundaries.

The GLA will continue to work with the five boroughs and local stakeholders to identify the best way forward for Crystal Palace.
