Save Athletics - and sports - at Crystal Palace. Current plans threaten to bulldoze the iconic athletics stadium and indoor training track, and significantly reduce other indoor and outdoor sporting facilities in the NSC. The impact of this on track and field in London, let alone other sports could be disastrous. What IS the Olympic Legacy for South London?! The Crystal Palace Sports Partnership (CPSP) is a group of stakeholders who are combining to form one unified voice representing all interests in the future of this historic site. Our mission is simple:
We support a mixed-use sports and leisure centre at Crystal Palace - a sustainable facility that is shared by the local community, schools, clubs and aspiring athletes at all levels. It should be a resource that caters for the needs of recreational users as much as it provides for and supports the development of the next generation of Olympic athletes.
We are concerned that the consultation by the GLA for repurposing the current National Sports Centre is way too short and has failed to identify and consider the needs and views of existing users.
We request that user groups and local stakeholders are more thoroughly engaged in shaping the outcome of this process.
