Answered By:

The sports centre at Crystal Palace is an iconic venue with a rich sporting history.  I want to ensure that it has a long-term and sustainable future as a multi-sport venue.  I have commissioned a sporting facility needs assessment to better understand what scale and scope of sporting infrastructure is required in the future.   This study is looking at supply and demand of sporting facilities in Crystal Palace and the wider South London area.  The findings from this will help form part of the evidence baseline for a detailed feasibility and options appraisal.
