‘Deep suspicion’ over Mayor plans for National Sports Centre
Shame if a National icon should disappear
The future of the athletics stadium at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre is under threat once again, as the Mayor of London is staging the latest round of “consultations” on the badly neglected, once internationally renowned facility.
Campaigners have voiced fears that plans have already been set to close down large parts of the sports centre from March 2020.
The Grade II-listed sports hall and swimming pool at Crystal Palace. What does the future hold?
Sports groups who ran campaigns to stop the bulldozing of the stadium under plans hatched up by previous Mayor, Boris Johnson, say that they are “immensely worried” by the details of the consultation announced so far, and over the way in which the public engagement has been poorly publicised, with events “sneaked out” over the August bank holiday weekend.
They accuse City Hall of already having a set agenda for the outcome.
