MASTER PLAN - PLANNING APPLICATION to BROMLEY COUNCIL
LINKS TO CRITICAL DOCUMENTS
These links provide direct access to the important documents of the Master Plan which have been collected on this website for convenience - there is no real need to look elsewhere. Nevertheless, links are also given to other web sites of importance: LDA, Bromley Council and Crystal Palace Park.
Note that the files appear as .pdf documents in a separate window which could be saved on your computer if you wish. They are quite large sizes and are given below*.
These are the main documents to look at - helpful recommendations were given by Peter Martin, from Bromley Council, at the stakeholders Main Group Meeting on the 23rd February 2008 (last Saturday). Literally thousands of pages of documents formed the complete planning application so, unless we are all able to take a couple of months off work, this route seems the most practical to get at the gist of the issues.
There are, in fact three applications (see my email Bulletin of December 2007 to the Campaign mailing list); to summarise, they are:

As well as the formal submission, there is a large quantity of back-up documents. Two important items have been on the website via the email Bulletin mentioned above. However, these are probably the most up to date versions:
The costs are broken down by zone and have certain aspects excluded - these are clearly listed.
7: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - Why does the Master Plan include housing? What is the planning process?etc
Links for comments have been removed since the planning meeting was held in December 2008.
8: MASTER PLAN - INSPECTORS REPORTS
link removed, not active at present
SUPPORT THE MASTER PLANThe Master Plan Outline Planning Application was approved by Bromley Council in December 2008. It was Called-In by the Secretary of State, following objections, in January 2009. There is a Planning Inquiry planned for July 2009. If you think that the Master Plan is essential for the regeneration of Crystal Palace Park (and its surrounding areas), then you can support it by either speaking at the Inquiry or by nominating someone to speak for you. To see how this can easily be done go to the SUPPORT page. ...LINK removed, no longer required.

* NOTES ON DOWNLOADING: I've timed the download and entered the result after each major document - this is the time from the start to the point where the file can be used. There may be some downloading in the background afterwards. My connection is broadband, theoretically 8MB speed. Note - the screen (on my system) goes BLACK until the download is complete, don't panic! Navigation instructions on each document (e.g. BACK) probably won't work - use the window's or website buttons.

Finally, a link with Bromley's email address is provided for your response to them. While a good deal of time is spent trying to find something to object to, it is also very important to write to them indicating your approval or even qualified approval. It seems to me that this is a great opportunity to regenerate Crystal Palace Park - as one local resident put it "a chance in a generation" - so we should grab it!
