EMPOWERING OUR COMMUNITY

                   WE NEED YOU...!!!!


THANK YOU FOR CONTINUED SUPPORT TO SAVE BRIDGE PARK LAND & COMPLEX

*FIRSTLY - BRIDGE PARK IS NOT SOLD.

Bridge Park Community Council as successor to HPCC established Bridge Park Complex Steering Group, to protect the interest, control and development of the Bridge Park Land and Properties for the community. 

In the 1980s, HPCC, founded by a group of young 16-20 year olds, who followed their vision and desire to serve the community, and to ensure that the young men and women growing up in Stonebridge, N.W London had facilities and opportunities to empower them to succeed.  They bought the land supported by sourced grant funding of £1.8m. 

They raised a further £3m+ along backing to design and build the current Bridge Park Complex seen today. The original vision was for the creation of educational, commercial business units, sports and multi-purpose facilities.  The land is estimated to be worth over £50 million on the open market.

In order for HPCC to obtain the funds, Brent Council acted as custodians ONLY: with no right to sell, transfer or dispose of the land, acquired by the community for the community. The Bridge Park site had a protective covenant on the land.  Brent Council officers removed the covenant prior to February 2014.  The community were not informed.

Experienced Lawyers, (DWFM Beckman, London) have been engaged, and advice has been taken from a Senior Counsel, specialising in this area of Law and Chancery.

*Brent Council entered into the Conditional Land Sale Agreement with General Mediterranean Holding (GMH) as guarantor, for the sale of the Bridge Park Complex in June 2017.  A strict condition of the sale is that the land must be free of all interests. Brent Council plan to allow development worth over £800 million on the land, but aim to sell off the Land and 42x Business Units, 2x restaurants, Bar, 2x Gyms, full size In-door Basketball and Badmintons Courts, plus Multi-faith centre and Nursery buildings all this for less than £13 million Brent  will not fully disclose the lower price. THIS DID NOT GO TO TENDER !!!

HPCC in association with successor's BPCC Steering Group and S.C. Trust (HPCC) Ltd the land.

An application to the Land Registry to restrict Brent Council, to stop the Sale of Bridge Park was made in August 2017, through our lawyers.  

Brent Council have been given an extension of 30 days to file their documents to challenge this restriction.  

***** WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT *****

Our community needs a lot more than a Gym & Swimming Pool.

We will build an iconic Centre of Excellence  for The Community by The Community. Addressing our Educational, Social and Commercial needs. And most of all it will be self funded and sustained.

A land mark building upon which we can take pride in.

Come and get involved - Sign the petition against Brent Council's plans 

WE NEED  our community building to be kept in the hands of the COMMUNITY in PERPETUITY!!

Help us to raise the much needed funds for the legal challenge to halt the sale of Bridge Park.

WE NEED TO FIRST RAISE THE INITIAL £10,000 OF THE £25,000 FOR OUR LEGAL DEPOSIT, TO FIGHT OUR CASE IN THE HIGH COURT, LONDON.

Thank you all for your support, we have now hit our Legal deposit and will now target the first stage fees of £25k. Brent Council have this week decided to apply for a summary judgement, this is a well known tactic to attempt run down our finances and resources by applying to have our case thrown out before it is heard by the court. We believe this is unfair as it will require us to now prepare for an additional hearing along with the unforeseen extra time and costs associated. We assure the community will strongly resist Brent in this matter where possible and defend when required.

The first of many dates in court is mid to end January 2019, we expect this will be for procedural matters only we will try to keep you posted on our website. The post maybe sometime behind the events as our site is likely monitored by the others….. and we cannot give away our advanced information or key evidence.

Our meeting on Sunday 9th Dec 2018 was absolutely amazing we allowed for 350 and got well over double that amount.

We hereby in summary acknowledge and thank you all for the heart felt expressions that Bridge Park should not be sold and should remain in the ownership and control of the community in perpetuity. As a result of your requests by Tuesday 18 Dec, 2018 we will update the website and links to include the option for small regular donations through subscription and standing order. After Tuesday 18th December 2018 please re-share our updated donations page located on www.bridgeparkcomplex.com with as much people as possible.

"The only thing required for evil to conquer is for the good to stand by and do nothing".

With your continued help we will prevail, again we thank you sincerely for your support.

We continue to work to do you proud, Thank you.
