Pavilion Building allowed to fall apart

The tragedy of the War Memorial Pavilion has been revealed by arial photos taken by residents.

The project had been to bring the changing rooms back into early use for the community clubs playing on these fields. There were relatively new boilers and heating systems installed just before Imperial College sold the site. The building interior had been dry – even if the changing rooms needed to be brought up to modern standards.

The Localism Act states that ‘social interests’ include cultural, recreational and sporting interests
