It always strikes me as remarkable what attracts controversy and what does not. Brent Council normally has enormous rows over buildings that, whatever there merits often affect fairly small numbers of users. By contrast, big policies that affect thousands of people like taking BHP properties back in house get little comment.
An even more striking example is the NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plan for North West London. The Cabinet minutes show little concern over this. Yet, it is likely to see a substantial downgrading of Central Middlesex and Charing Cross Hospitals, which affects a large part of the southern part of Brent. Why the reticent response?
