Save the Corrib Pubs Community Rooms

Save the Corrib Pubs Community Rooms

Ensure that people retain the use of the community rooms as demanded in the 106 agreement. Brent Council own this right and should not give it away to a developer

Why is this important?

These rooms are a well-regarded facility in the area with a great future when used by the community. Many people have attended events at the Corrib Rest and recent attempts by local residents have tried to arrange activities.

Pensioners now evicted from their weekly get togethers here have now had to use an unheated hall. Community facilities like this are far more important than 9 luxury flats.

The petition was delivered to the planners and now we have the Committee hearing. On Weds 28th June at 7pm we want to try and get as many people as possible to attend the hearing to support the community rooms being kept. please attend if you can at Brent Civic Centre, Engineers Way, Wembley, HA9 0FJ. support is important so please help and attend if you feel strongly about loss of community spaces

Reasons for signing

  • I signed even though i do not know the Corrib and i do not live around here because it seems to me that all over this area we are losing common spaces that people can use for their own purposes. And communities need those spaces in order to stay in touch with each other and remain a community rather than isolated individuals. The planning restrictions must stay in place that prevent development as flats and allow this very restricted time as a gesture towards community use.
  • Why should our communities be blighted by greedy developers who care nothing for the needs of ordinary people?
  • Community centres hold an important part of a neighbourhood. London is losing its identity and sense community through continual developers putting up unaffordable housing.
