Standing with residents against excessive Queen's Hotel expansion

Crystal Palace is a wonderful place to live, and we are lucky to have so many fantastic local businesses, pubs and attractions nearby.
It’s no surprise that so many people want to visit us in Crystal Palace, to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the area.
The Queen’s Hotel plays an important role in local tourism – it serves as one of the premier destinations in south London, and has undoubtedly boosted the local economy.
Andy, Gemma and Dan have been talking to residents across Crystal Palace, and it’s clear that the proposed expansion plans are excessive, unnecessary and impractical.
We will continue to oppose the overdevelopment of the hotel, and ensure that hundreds of residents who have made formal objections are listened to.
The developers know that a Labour administration on Croydon Council won’t stand up for local residents.
Across the entire borough, they have shown that residents are merely an afterthought when it comes to planning issues.
The Croydon Conservatives are on the side of local residents. We will keep the pressure on the Queen’s Hotel to hold them to account.
Any future development must be in keeping with the character in Crystal Palace we are so lucky to have.
