Steve Parish spoke to Palace TV minutes after hearing the unanimous vote from the Croydon Council planning committee that they granted permission for the redevelopment of Selhurst Park
The Palace Chairman has worked tirelessly to ensure that everything was prepared for the application which will not only transform the stadium but also have a positive impact on the south London community.
"It’s such a huge moment for the club, there have been so many planning applications that have gone in the past and failed so to achieve that is fantastic and with unanimous support from the council who have been superb through the whole process.
"Everybody just sees what a great positive thing it is for the area and when we showed some of the councillors round some of the current facilities they were as embarrassed in some ways as us. I am so excited because people have worked so hard for this and is the product of a lot of thinking over the last eight years and a lot of hard work by people and not an insignificant amount of money either so just huge and so exciting for me personally as a supporter of the club, number one and number two, somebody who is managing a team of people who have all worked brilliantly together to make it happen."
