Drop private hire plans for ALL parks
My Colleagues Cllr Andreas Ioannides of Brunswick Park, and colleagues in West Finchley and West Hendon are very worried about the issue of private hire of parks. It seems the direction of travel is right with regards to Victoria Park in West Finchley, but the stunningly beautiful Oak Hill Park and Hendon Park are not so lucky thus far. I understand that Oak Hill may see good news, but no word yet on Hendon Park.
Public parks were set up to be enjoyed by all the public, not just a few who could afford to. Not all of us have back gardens, and parks are the only free leisure areas that some kids have. We should be encouraging that, not sectioning them off.
