Demonstrate on  28 July 2014 6.15 at a Pre Application Planning Meeting  at the Civic Centre Wood Green N22

Instead of a Sell Off - let's expand the provision on Haringey's only hospital site. Residents are calling for a Walk In Urgent Care Centre, more GP Facilities, a Child Health Centre and expanded Mental Health provision
Barnet Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust are putting forward their plans to sell off 2/3rds of our NHS at what is called a Pre Application Meeting  where Members (of the Council) NOT the public can raise concerns about this development.

This seems a sneaky way of smoothing things through before a planning decision is made by the Council in Mid September.

Come and raise your own concerns and anger about the way this plan is being pushed through without any Health Assessment or "Health Check" made of the health needs of the Borough.       

No Sell  off Without a Health Check !

Meet  6 15  at Civic Centre Wood Green High Road N22

Bring friends and colleagues! Bring placards.Show you want a Better St Ann's

 -Last Chance to Save this NHS land being lost forever !  If the  Plan goes through in September 2014 it could be sold on to any developer!

On 20th June Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust (BEHMHT) submitted the outline planning application for the St Ann's Hospital site.   This is our hospital, it is NHS land that belongs to us, they cannot be allowed to sell the site without demonstrating how our health will benefit.

At a recent so called "Consultation"Meeting  on 16/7/14 despite anger and concern expressed by residents and hospital users there were more questions than answers from BEH and the planning bureaucrats!

No Sell Off Without a Health Check! Residents and HaNSAH have consistently called for a Walk In Urgent Care Centre, more GP Facilities, a Child Health Centre and expanded Mental Health provision.

Friern Barnet Library Saved – handover ceremony on Tuesday 12 Noon

On Tuesday 5th February, at midday, exactly five months since the occupation began, the community will take possession of the Friern Barnet Library. The local community – represented by the trustees of the library - are on the verge of agreeing a two-year lease with Barnet Council (LBB) to run the library with some funding.

At the ceremony, squatters and supporters of the Occupy movement, who have been keeping the building open and enabling the local community to run a book lending service and community centre in the building, will hand it over to the trustees of the newly formed Friern Barnet Community Library (FBCL). They have now received a licence from LBB to be in the library for two weeks with the promise of renewal of the licence if necessary to negotiate a lease and other matters (eg, who pays the utilities, insurance, and ongoing future repairs). LBB has shown a willingness to amend the licence to their satisfaction.
