In draft policies for its local plan, Bromley Council is proposing to frame the 'Strategic Outer London Development Centre' status for the Crystal Palace area "to maintain enhance and support the unique existing strategic cultural, sports, tourism and leisure functions of the Crystal Palace Park, and particularly the sub-regional importance of the National Sports Centre. maintaining and improving the park's open setting and the visual and landscaping amenities which inform its character and that of the key heritage assets within its boundaries." Do you support this proposal, which amounts to the SOLDC status promoting endogenous but not exogenous growth for the park?

In the Further Alterations to the London Plan I proposed working with relevant stakeholders to explore the potential for Strategic Outer London Development Centres including one at Crystal Palace that would be based on the importance of the area for leisure, tourism arts, culture and sports. We are currently discussing with Bromley and other stakeholders how this should be framed and the geographical extent of the area.
