Re: Crystal Palace statue?

To quote from the thread with regards to what I have called "Plinth #6: The "Guide to the Crystal Palace and Gardens" states that 26 statues personifying Cities and Nations important to trade, stood on the upper terrace. This must be inaccurate as only 24 were ever present. They were also not arrang...

Re: A Walk through the Nave of the Crystal Palace 1854

Don't quite understand the beginning of your post but you are very welcome all the same. I was inspired by the Masterplan, to do what I could to remind people of the history of the Park, no idea if that has been achieved. As the Masterplan arose form the Sports Council announcing they were abandonin...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

At the meetings I attended, staffed by people employed by a PR company and hired by the LDA it was astonishing how everything dissolved in smoke and mirrors, except housing. Of course this was immediately pounced on by objectors, when it was clear to me that a little subtle questioning and they woul...

Re: RIP DYLON FACTORY

Question is, how to make design an issue in development. Neither community interest nor legislation seem to be working.

Perhaps I am thinking of a form of "Social Design" . . . . .

I was present all that time ago to hear raised voices on both sides, my aspiration in commenting on this site is to be a sort of "anti-troll." Constantly harping on about objectors and their puce faced objecting is just adding a whine to shouting. The Masterplan is after all just a [very expensive] ...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

I think so much of this proposal has come from and will be decided by people holding powers for others. As the redevelopment has always been the primary stage it is obviously their priority. Negotiationing or objecting about the redevolpments relationship to the far off benefits to the park, is abou...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

While a plan that is staggered may seem more achievable, it's also prone to mission creep and a turnover of leaders that mean all momentum is lost. Why NOTHING can be done in the meantime, clearly indicates to me that for any user of the park to see these improvements, housing development will have ...

I think the worst thing about all these empty promises, which from what I recall if the public meetings, were supported with high approval ratings from earlier meetings with local community groups, without housing having being cleariy presented as part of the cost.

Er, because the millions of pounds to fund it don't exist ? And I would think that is holding up any implementation of the masterplan, rather than any well reasoned or personally vituperative exchanges either here or anywhere else.
