|Town Hall car park still full|
The Council's corporate risk assessment had recorded a risk with the telecommunications system before the move and the danger this posed both to the effective running of the Council and to its reputation.
The councillor added, 'No one is talking about it publicly but we all know how bad it is.'
Meanwhile residents puzzled as to why the now empty Brent Town Hall has a full car park need look no further than the Civic Centre. The Centre was designed to discourage car use by council staff and encourage a shift to public transport. Instead it seems that staff are driving to the Town Hall and parking there, thus avoiding parking charges, and walking round the corner to Bridge Road and accessing the Civic Centre via Olympic Way. That option will soon disappear when the French School starts work on adapting the Town Hall.
