In the shadow of Grenfell, plans by Kensington and Chelsea Council to lease the borough’s oldest library to the private Notting Hill Prep School may now be in the balance. After an impassioned campaign by residents to keep the library open to all, the prep school has told Channel 4 News it would welcome a review of the decision to lease the library to them. And the council has also confirmed that after the Grenfell disaster, all regeneration plans are now on hold.
