The Crystal Palace Chamber of Commerce are a business networking group in the Crystal Palace and Norwood area, which is member-led, and acts as a strong voice for all local businesses regardless of size. They are holding their own question time on the issue of the proposed re-building of Crystal Palace, on Thursday 27th March, 7pm; and I reproduce their own statement below. (Clearly this is not the meeting as promised by Friends of Belair Park, which we are in the process of organising right now, and which will be announced shortly. I re-iterate Friends of Belair Park will be staging a separate and more general meeting soon.)
Venue: The Queens Hotel, 122 Church Rd, London SE19 2UG, See Map
Crystal Palace Chamber Of Commerce is staging a Question Time event next Thursday, March 27, from 7pm at the Queens Hotel, Church Road, where members of the public put their questions to Greater London Authority members of the Labour, Conservative and Green Party – Val Shawcross, Darren Johnson and Steve O’Connell.
The discussion will be chaired by former City lawyer and Vicar of Christchurch, Gipsy Hill, Jonathan Croucher.
The GLA has big plans for Crystal Palace, but what do you think?
- Should the top site of Crystal Palace Park be sold off?
- Should the process be more transparent?
- Do we need more development in Crystal Palace?
- How can we create more jobs?
- Will we get a tram? Or do we want one? How do we address Crystal Palace’s problems of being on the edge of five boroughs?
- Is the independent ethos of Crystal Palace’s High Street something to be valued?
This is your chance to have your voice heard and tell the politicians what you think really matters. What would your question be? Please email Paul Bartholomew at firstname.lastname@example.org to help us structure the debate.
The Crystal Palace Chamber of Commerce looks forward to your contribution and hopes you can attend. Due to limited space we would be very grateful if you could let the organisers know by emailing Paul Bartholomew.
This meeting has been publicised in Inside Croydon which is an interesting publication in itself with leads to other Crystal Palace coverage.
