The council wants to hear proposals

The council is seeking creative proposals for a new-world class cultural destination at Crystal Palace Park.

Based near the Crystal Palace triangle, the site of the proposed development would include the Grade II listed Victorian subway, which was originally created as a grand entrance to the park for first class customers from the now demolished High Level Train Station.

“This is very much the first step in a process and we are seeking expressions of interest from a wide range of cultural venues to fulfil the potential of this unique location,” said leader of Bromley council Stephen Carr.

“We could eventually see a proposal that becomes a viable venue in its own right, while ensuring the restoration of the subway.

“The Victorian subway is a rare part of the surviving infrastructure of Crystal Palace Park but access is very restricted, with members of the public unable to see the magnificence of the subway that remains today.”

Anyone who has suggestions for the proposal, has until May 10 to submit an expression of interest via the council’s website.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
