Campaigners trying to prevent a sports venue in north west London from behind demolished say the concerns of the local community are being ignored.
Westminster Council approved plans to demolish the Jubilee Centre in Queen’s Park last year, replacing it with a new centre in Brent.
But Julius Hogben and Eartha Pond from the Save Our Jubilee campaign say the decision will cost the community.
In a statement Westminster City Council said: “Planning permission has been granted to merge the nearby Moberly and Jubilee Sports Centres to create one new state-of-the-art leisure centre for Queen’s Park and a smaller community sports facility on the Jubilee site.
“The new leisure centre will offer larger facilities than the existing Moberly and Jubilee centres combined.The redevelopment is bringing much-needed sports improvement to Queen’s Park.”
