Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have already recognised the strategic cross-border importance of this area both through the recent proposed planning designation (as a Strategic Outer London Development Centre, via FALP) and through the regeneration study commissioned by the GLA across the five local borough boundaries. I support the efforts being made to foster cross boundary working and welcomes the ongoing discussions between the boroughs and local people around the Crystal Palace and Upper Norwood area.
