Public can comment on Crystal Palace’s planning application to redevelop Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace’s planning application for a major redevelopment of their Main Stand is now open for the public to comment on.

The full proposals can be viewed online with any feedback considered by Croydon Council’s planning committee.

Palace are expecting a decision on their plans in April.

Eagles chairman Steve Parish said: “I would urge all our supporters to submit comments to Croydon Council to give our application the best possible chance of approval.

“This huge investment in Selhurst Park will provide a major boost to the borough in so many ways, including creating hundreds of new jobs, more facilities and space for our community to gather, and give thousands more fans the chance to experience top-flight football at Palace.

“Our plans will transform the matchday experience for our fans and visitors to the borough, and by extending the pitch length – we are making Selhurst Park eligible to host international football in the future.

“We need a stadium that reflects who we are, how far we have come and where we want to go – a stadium that South London can be proud of, a home worthy of our incredible support and unique atmosphere and this great Premier League we represent.

“We are committed to working with Croydon Council to ensure our application proceeds, but now is your chance to support our bid. Please submit your comments on our proposal on the Croydon Council planning portal.”

Palace have pegged the cost at up to £100million. The work will boost Selhurst Park’s capacity to 34,000.
