About our business hub for Crystal Palace businesses
In 2020, in response to the pandemic, we made our website front page available as a temporary emergency information hub for businesses and local services dealing with the impact of Coronavirus / Covid-19 (20 March 2020 - 14 June 2020).
After the end of the first lockdown in 2020, we created a permanent Covid19 Hub for businesses in Crystal Palace to provide quick and easy access to information and resources currently available from local authorities.
We have created a permanent support hub for Crystal Palace businesses and have moved the Covid support content to a separate page.
