High public-profile businesses like Sainsbury's are notoriously PR aware and highly sensitive about negative publicity. Until now, with the rebuild not rubber-stamped by the authorities, there's been nothing of substance worth talking about but now the green light has been given (if it's been given) to start the work, my guess is that Sainsbury's will strike the required deal rather than long out years of bad publicity and high legal costs for a case that will end in them losing anyway, eventually, to a compulsory purchase order. They'll use the threat of doing that to maximise their return but I find it hard to believe a solution won't be found that doesn't unduly delay things.

If 2025 is really the opening date (three years from now) I'd guess building work, which is going to be mainly behind the Old Stand and therefore won't interfere with the existing ground until maybe the last twelve months of the build would start towards the end of this season. It'd be the 2024-25 season that would see real disruption (in-season shutting of the Old Stand) but by then, a substantial part of the "new" old stand should be towering over the existing stand and by that point already looking like what it'll end up being.

 


Sydenham by birth. Selhurst by the Grace of God.

I believe that planning permission has been granted By Croydon Council and the Mayor of London has rubber stamped this as well. CPFC still have to rehouse the residents in Wooderson Close (compensation and moving costs have been agreed with the Council, not sure about the residents themselves?)
However Sainsburys still remain the block in the chain, will they negotiate and sell the small piece of land we require to complete the new stand works?
If not compulsory purchase may come into play here and that could take years!

Compulsory purchase does not have to take years. There will be long established cases of the value of loss of parking relative to a retail store so the loss to Sainsburys can be easily calculated. It wonít be a huge sum and once the valuers realise that then an offer under threat of CPO plus sweetener could seal the deal reasonably quickly. Sainsburys have nothing to gain from being a stick in the mud on this one.

A longer term option of a new Whitehorse stand with store beneath could well be lurking in the background anyway.

I am having an extension built now which I signed up for 3 months ago. The price is still the same because the contract was signed back then, irrespective of supply issues or inflation.


Expect inferior workmanship. Youíll probably have labourers carrying out tradesmanís work to recoup the money lost in materials. Or the builder never being in a position to start the job.
Last thing Iíd want is a building firm working in my house, that donít want to be there.

It's all going well so far.

Hopefully it will get built by 2025; long overdue redevelopment of the main stand. On a personal note, I would have liked two glass-effect towers at either end which could have housed the floodlights, thereby retaining a more appropriate image of the original Crystal Palace.

 


hats off to palace, they were always gonna be louder, and hate to say it but they were impressive ALL bouncing and singing.

I hear that a builder has been appointed his name is Dave and he will start once he finishes a couple of conservatories in Selsdon and a kitchen installation in Cheam.

He works with his brother Steve and they should be finished with the new stand ready for the start of our celebration for 200 years in existence.

Steve and Dave could also do with a couple of grand upfront for materials to get started

Doesn't work like that in construction game.

If material prices go up so does the price of the job.

Clear examples are look at a few stadiums

Tottenham 400m it ended up costing them around billion.

Wembley was close to the same as Tottenham it ended up being around 800m

Liverpools stand suppose to be 60m it ended up being around 110m

Key word 'maybe'.

Perhaps this could be a rare occasion where you are right on Palace talk.
