Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


Supplementary memorandum submitted by Mr John Bicourt, John Bicourt Associates


  I omitted from my memorandum on Crystal Palace that specifically regarding the required warm up track there is sufficient space which would allow the minimum of disruption to site a temporary track on the very large completely flat open top site known as the terraces and rarely used or visited by the public compared with the main Park and concert bowl area. It is big enough to accommodate a separate dedicated throwing area as well as a running track with infield jumps facilities which can all be removed after the championships. The cost would be minimal compared with any other area which would require levelling and considerable disruption for the public.

  How many of the Committee have actually been to Crystal Palace to view the entire Park and Sports Centre? Bromley Council has a very clear diagrammatic aerial view of the entire facility which clearly shows the full potential. This should be shown to the Committee.
