Question

The SNTs are now all based centrally but the Queen's Crescent base is still in police ownership until 2016 when the lease expires and it reverts back to Camden Council.  Until then it is remaining empty. The Queen's Crescent Market Forum have taken over the running of Queen's Crescent market from the council and they need a base for their 4/5 market staff. They have asked the MPS if their community team can use the SNT base between now and when the lease expires, they have been refused. Will you intervene and ensure the forum can use this base until the lease expires?

The MPS property services team has been working on this issue.

 The terms of the lease between MOPAC and our landlord prohibit the sharing of space and the use is restricted to policing use only - Queen’s Crescent Market Forum are aware of this.

 The MPS has offered to surrender the lease early and is in communication with the London Borough of Camden about this issue.
