Some time ago Brent Council, through its peculiar constitutional arrangement, leased out the main building in Barham Park to a charity called ACAVA. As usual, there all kinds of criticisms of this move. There was a dogged attempt to refuse planning permission, and an attack on the ACAVA lease decision, although fortunately no repeat of the Paul Lorber inspired attempt to build on the park.
The latest minutes show that the Park is functioning normally. There are ongoing problems with rough sleepers, arson attacks and so on, but have the buildings occupied helps contain the problem, and the income of the Trust is much improved.
