Do you know someone who would appreciate a present that will help protect the future of accessible green spaces for all?
We are delighted that our member the Crystal Palace Community Association (CPCA) has been granted permission to appeal against the High Court ruling that the unique, Bromley Council owned, Crystal Palace Park can be sacrificed for commercial development.
The CPCA’s case for an appeal was heard before Lord Justice Lewison on 31 October. He found for the association and ruled that its appeal will be heard in the Court of Appeal. This will be before three judges, probably early next summer.
The High Court had rejected CPCA’s case against the sale of part of Crystal Palace Park for 180 private luxury apartments in blocks of flats, to part-fund a so-called masterplan for the rest of the site.
We are delighted that the fight is still on, and we applaud CPCA’s efforts to save this unique, protected Grade II* registered Metropolitan Open Land, public parkland, from development.’
