Friends of Kensal Rise Library update 20th July 2014

THIS JUST IN:

Hi Everyone,

Two important points:

1. The planning application for the Kensal Rise library was approved at the planning Committee Meeting on Wednesday 16th July.

2. The developer has agreed to name FKRL as the 'actual' rather than 'preferred' tenant of the community space. This means that subject to lease and management arrangements being agreed the space will not have to be tendered out to other groups (The 'Exception' in the Localism Act allows for this) and FKRL can look forward to being the new tenants.

FKRL knows that this is not an ideal but a compromise solution, and we know there are challenging times ahead, but there has been so much support for our campaign, and there remains so much goodwill, that we are determined, with this continued support, to have a library back in our building. We are looking forward to planning our library and community space and we hope as many of you as possible will want to be involved.

Thank you to everyone in the community, and beyond, who have supported us for nearly four years, any success we have had is due to your support.


Regards,

Margaret Bailey
Chair
FKRL

Huge London plane trees as big as the five-storey buildings in Norfolk Gardens, Paddington

Mutant spiders spin their webs from these odd trees along Cavendish Avenue, near Sudbury Hill.
