Campaigner registers Willesden Green Library as a Town Green
Crusader is concerned that demolition plans will lead to loss of public space
An application has been made to register the open space outside Willesden Green Library as a Town Green.
Campaigner, Martin Redston, has submitted the application which has been acknowledged by Brent Council as valid.
He said: “I’m doing this on behalf of the general public who have used the square as a right for at least 20 years.
“That square was envisaged in 1983 as a public meeting place and recreational space.”

Brent Council wants to build a new cultural centre in Willesden Green which would mean the demolition of the current Willesden Green Library, in Willesden High Road, and loss of the open public space.
Mr Redston said: “This application is to ensure this square remains an open meeting space for residents and not part of this new development.”
