I understand that the initial work has begun on improvements to Barham Park. This first phase is to remove a number of conifers that have become the focus of anti-social behaviour. The total programme of works is very ambitious. Only part of the funding is available (from the sale of a couple of houses near the site). What I find extraordinary is that Cllr Paul Lorber, Leader of Brent Liberal Democrats and Sudbury ward councillor has opposed improvements to the park every step of the way.
The whole programme has taken a long time to develop. I have remarked before that it is very odd that one of the local councillors should be the fiercest opponent to improvements to their own ward. Possibly his diehard opposition is linked to his desire to take over the buildings in the park.
