CHEAP AND CONTROVERSIAL

  • Comment

London Borough of Bromley councillors last week approved the use of cheaper materials on the controversial Crystal Palace Park multiplex and leisure complex, despite warnings that the move could lead to court action. It emerged in August (AJ 17.8.00) that architect Ian Ritchie had been replaced by RHWL on the scheme and now materials have been changed for 'cheaper and more sustainable' versions. The move led to anger from campaigners against the development. Crystal Palace campaign spokesman Fred Emery said: 'Bromley councillors voted without having seen any samples of the massive structure's finish or any meaningful illustration of its gross impact on the London skyline.'
