Karen Buck MP is working closely with Dibdin House residents in Maida Vale to combat anti-social behaviour and to get the currently closed Dibdin Community Hall back into use.
“Disappointingly, Genesis have now confirmed that it is not Health and Safety considerations that have impeded access to Dibdin Hall by residents and that Grainger are now seeking to make other uses of the space. I have been forwarded the following statement by Grainger;
‘Grainger is keen to find a suitable and economically sustainable use for the space in the near future and is currently considering what options are available for the space. They are therefore unable to allow the unit to be used at present, as it could impede these considerations and negatively impact on the options available.’
Whilst Genesis are keen to provide assistance in finding other venues for community events, I am saddened at what would prove to be a great loss for the estate should the space be sold or, indeed, turned into another flat. Dibdin Hall was intended as a community space and it should stay that way. I am committed to working on this issue and applying pressure to both Genesis and Grainger and it would be good to work with residents on this.”
