seasons greeting 2010/2011

Crystal Palace Park-December 2010

All the best for the new season to all... and good news with which to end the year!

Secretary of State approves Master Plan

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the Right Hon. Eric Pickles, has fully approved:

Application A - the Master Plan for Crystal Palace Park
Application B - conservation area consent
C - listed building consent.

A large number of people and organisations have worked towards the regeneration of Crystal Palace Park; this is a real 'holiday season' gift to them as well as to local residents, park users, the local economy and others. The huge amount of work put into the Master Plan by its many contributors, financed by the LDA and supported by a majority of local people, now has to put into practice. Everyone faces the challenge in the new year of implementing the plan - a complicated but satisfying task.

One caveat, clause 15 in the approval letter of 13 December 2010: " ...the validity of the Secretary of State’s decision may be challenged by making an application to the High Court within six weeks from the date of this letter." See Right to Challenge link below.
