Link to Brent Council application
As you will know the Council has decided to lease the Barham Library building and other parts of the building to an organisation called ACAVA who want to convert the space to 29 ‘artist studios for rent’. The lease is for 15 years with no break clauses.
It is the Council however (through the Barham Park Charity) who have submitted a planning application for change of use from D1 (library) to B1 (artist studios). ACAVA claim that they need 24 hour access to the building and this is what the Council is applying for on their behalf despite the fact that the residential area starts just on the opposite side of Harrow Road.
