Warren Farm - A Councillor Responds
Conservative group leader David Millican replies to Nic Ferriday
Nic Ferriday, Chair of Brent River & Canal Society, has written an open letter to Ealing Councillors urging they prevent the 'giveaway' of 61 acres of open land to QPR football club.
The Conservative group leader, Councillor David Millican, has sent this response:
We have been fighting to keep the Warren Farm wholly in public use despite the determination of the Labour council to allow it to be fenced off for the exclusive use of QPR.
You might be aware that as the Opposition, we have "called-in" the decision twice for the Council's Overview and Scrutiny Committee to re-consider the matter.
The first time was on the basis that, as Conservatives, we thought that 200 years was too long to lease the land and the second on the basis of the financial standing of QPR as a business.
