Question

Given your own previously expressed concerns over the private management of publicly accessible space, and the impact this can have on Londoners feeling excluded from parts of their own city, how do you respond to the plans put forward by QPR holdings to develop a largely private training facility on previously accessible open land at Warren Farm in the London Borough of Ealing?

I have supported both the previous and current application for the new community sports facilities and QPR training facility at Warren Farm.

The site is designated as Community Open Space (and Metropolitan Open Land) reflecting its use a sports ground. However, it is not public open space and there are no public rights of way across the site (there is a separate application to have the Definitive Map modified to include a public right of way across the site, but this is not confirmed and is subject to a separate process).
