Barnet Council trying to sell public land to ease budget pressures

Campaigners launch ombudsman complaint in bid to save Hendon FC's former ground in Cricklewood


A statement from the council said it was looking to market the site to “help ease budget pressures”.
However, campaigners Gordon Kerr and Robert Goymour argue “This land belongs to the public, not the council, and it's not up to them to try and sell it off to make quick money. It's a community asset and must remain so.” 

[My comment: Ease the budget pressures so they can do what? Pay their senior officer even more money like Wokingham!]
