    Petitioning Brent Council

    #SaveGranville - Keep Granville and Carlton site in South Kilburn a space for us, by us!

    Please sign our petition asking Brent Council ... To not put housing on the Granville and Carlton site To have only  multipurpose community spaces managed by an alliance of community organisations and local residents. Background Granville and Carlton are two community buildings in the heart of South Killburn, in Northwest London. Both buildings were built for the community; Granville as multi-use community spaces and Carlton as a school and later adult education. In 2016 Granville Communtiy Kitchen and The Otherwise Club with the help of local residents and Councillors were able to change Brent Council's minds about tearing down these invaluable local heritage  buildings. Now in 2019 they have new plans we need to challenge. Multipurpose spaces are what Granville and Carlton have been for over 100 years! They were used for supporting those in need,  dances, weddings, celebrating and mourning, free advice, youth clubs and exercise classes, learning and socialising. Please sign our petition to keep these buildings for lots of community uses Social housing on this site? No thank you! We want more social housing but not on an amenity site purposely built for social use The South Kilburn Regeneration Programme is building over 2400 homes in the area. We need more multipurpose community spaces for these new residents! Please build more social housing but not on the site of the only public community spaces in the area! They are building 308 homes just 10m from the Granville Carlton site with only 42 (14 %) of these being social housing. Make more social housing in the Regeneration Programme but not on the community site. Please sign our petition to keep these buildings for lots of community uses We want: No housing on the site Multipurpose community spaces managed by an alliance of community organisations and local residents.
