We the undersigned petition Islington Council to call a halt to the un-democratic changes proposed to the sports facilities at the Sobell Centre in Finsbury Park.
Buried in 152 pages of budget proposals approved at the last Budget Council meeting on 23 February were a few brief sentences saying Sobell Centre managers GLL had a proposal for a trampoline park but gave no details of size, timing or funding. Immediately following this meeting however and with absolutely no public consultation, the council agreed GLL could convert half the Sobell sports hall into a trampoline park. We believe Islington Council has acted secretively and is in breach of its statutory duty to consult.
Islington residents and other Sobell customers need access to these precious, Olympic standard, mixed use, communal sports facilities and not a money generating, recreational leisure attraction. We urge Islington Council to review their lack of any prior public consultation and the reasoning behind this ill thought-out proposal.
