We the undersigned petition Hounslow Council to Withdraw decision to rush through lease to Feltham Assembly Hall with no consultation. More details

More details from petition creator

The local community in Feltham are angry and disappointed by the lack of transparency around a decision by Hounslow Council to terminate the current lease on the historic Feltham Assembly Hall seemingly with no consultation or advertising it to other interested groups and made by a ‘Single Member’ on 28th March and not brought to the recent local Area Forum for discussion.

The rent for the group is just £12,000 a year. The deal includes an upfront commitment for improvements to the site but does not appear to specify any further expenditure over the 20 year term. Other groups have questioned the lack of a transparent tender process which should be a minimum for assuring that the Council is getting value for money for the deal.

The Feltham Assembly Hall was originally given ‘for the children of Feltham’, and the Council has a duty to ensure that the whole community is involved in any decisions about its future.

By doing this deal in the run up to the election (‘purdah’), the Council also leaves itself open to accusations that it is favouring one particular group over others.

We call on the local Council to do the right thing and withdraw this decision, until such a time when there has been full consultation and outside of the election period.

Failing this, we call on local Councillors from across the Borough to ‘call in’ the decision – so there can be full scrutiny of the deal and ensure taxpayers, and local residents are not being short-changed by this deal.
