Petition for a Chinese Centre

Go petition logoPetition for a Chinese Community Centre at 399 Edgware Road

CMHA is advocating on behalf of the Chinese community in North London for a Chinese Community Centre to be built as part of the 399 Edgware Road development (the old site of Oriental City). This was something that was included in the original redevelopment plans but was dropped by the developers without sufficient consultation with members of the local community or any of the Chinese organisations operating in the area. Please add your voice to the campaign by signing this petition to the councillors and planners of Brent Borough Council, and sharing it with your friends and family.

Thank you very much for your support.
