Crystal Palace 'shatters'

  • Comment

Arup Associates' designs for the £40 million National Sports Centre at Crystal Palace have been shelved after Sport England withdrew £32 million in funding for the project. The scheme included the refurbishment of a listed indoor arena as well as new indoor tennis courts, athletics and swimming facilities. Sport England abandoned the plans after it decided instead to finance the development of a 60,000-seat athletics stadium at Pickett's Lock in east London to host the 2005 World Athletics Championship.
