Health opportunity missed: Palmers Green Library Space being:let to Fit4Less

Anyone who was expecting the vacant space at Palmers Green Library to be used for Health purposes (GP practice, dental practice) will be disappointed as Cabinet Members are proposing the space to be let to commercial operator Fit4Less, for more information on the operator CLICK HERE

The decision has been extracted from the local authority web site, CLICK HERE and reproduced as a document in a MSWord file

The opportunity exists for the decision to be subject to Councillor CALL IN if the CALL IN occurs before December 4th, 2015

As the GVA advertisement makes clear use other than Clasas D1 (Doctors Surgery) is subject to planning permission 


More accurately, we wanted and sought a practice. No doctor chose to move into the new facilities. We can't dictate that. So what do you do then?

All very good but "more accurately"  whilst one or two Bowes Ward Councillors may have been told this at sometime, and a resident has told me  that Cllr Bambos Charalambous had "mentioned" this at Palmers Green Forum; what conclusion am I expected to reach when the Officer's Part 1 report for Decision at Page 2 (reproduced below) 

neither makes no mention of this claim at all, nor any recent discussion with NHS England (London) Director of Primary Care Commissioning , David Sturgeon, to seek a resolution of the aspiration by leasing the property through NHS Property Co and appointing an employed GP or using the space for provision of out sourced services through In Health, or as a base for staff operating the newly introduced service NorthMid@Home being provided by HealthcareatHome

If I was conducting a prospective purchase of one of the 19 apartment flats in Prytaneum Court (Southgate Town Hall) I would assign a different financial value to the prospective property purchase if the adjoining development was a User Class D1 Doctors Surgery rather than a User Class D4/D5 development with a different demographic profile such as Fit4Less. My legal solicitor conducting a "personal search" would appear prime-facie currently to only gain the information under the 2013 Planning Permission P13-03626LBE.
