College Farm listed as an Asset of Community Value

There has been a lot of concern about College Farm in recent months. In January, an application was made to Barnet Council to list the farm as an Asset of Community Value. This was accompanied by a petition that attracted 3,276 signatories.

The Community Leadership and Libraries Committee met and voted unanimously in favour. This may offer some protection against its loss to developers. In response to my enquiries, Barnet Council have confirmed that there are no planning applications open. Furthermore, the sale of the land to the College Farm Trust stipulates that any further sale of the land is subject to the consent of the Department for Transport.
