The London Development Agency ("LDA") wants to sell off parts of Crystal Palace Park to private developers, so that they can build 176 private houses and flats inside the park.
We, the petitioners, say that Crystal Palace Park is a Grade II * listed park, and belongs to us, the public. Therefore we oppose any sale of any part of Crystal Palace Park for private development.
NO ANONYMOUS SIGNATURES, PLEASE: THEY DESTROY THE CREDIBILITY OF THE PETITION.
I am a local resident living only a few metres from Crystal Palace Park, and my campaign is for other locals whose environment is under threat.
But it\'s also wider than that: it\'s also about keeping public parkland PUBLIC, and telling the LDA that we will not allow them to ignore the protection of Grade II* and Open Metropolitan Land status.
If the LDA can steal one of our parks from us, which other parks will they start selling off Even if Crystal Palace Park isn\'t your park, it might be your park next. So act NOW before it\'s too late!
