Council owned land used as open space at the Dame Alice Owen Sports Ground

Received: 15 February 2021

With regard to the Council owned land used as open space at the Dame Alice Owen Sports Ground, Chandos Avenue, London N20 9DX (sometimes referred to as Pavilion Study Centre, 58B Chandos Avenue) please provide answers to the following;
* Has the Local Authority appropriated open space land under the Local Government Act 1972 / Town & Country Planning Act 1990? If land has been appropriated please provide a copy of the Local Authority's report, the decision, the minutes of any meeting when the decision was taken, the plan showing the extent of the land involved, and the Public Notice. I did email this question to estates.businesssupport@barnet.gov.uk on 2nd November 2020 but although I received an automated acknowledgement informing me that 'we aim to deal with emails within 15 working days once we have prioritised your enquiry' I have yet to receive an answer to my question.
* Was the decision to seek planning permission for the new Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) taken at Committee or officer level? I did ask the Governance Service for an answer to this question in May 2020 however as the officers were unable to provide an answer my question was eventually referred to a senior officer in Children's Services on 22nd September 2020, who I was told 'should be able to point me in the right direction.' I have not had any communication from the officer. If the decision was taken by a Council Committee please advise the name of the Committee and the date of the meeting so that I can access the report on the Council website. If the decision was taken at officer level please advise the officer title, the powers delegated to them, and provide a copy of the officer report.
* When was it decided that the open space needed for the new PRU was surplus to requirements? If the decision was taken by a Council Committee please advise the name of the Committee and the date of the meeting so that I can access the report on the Council website. If the decision was taken at officer level please advise the officer title, the powers delegated to them, and provide a copy of the officer report.
