The Queens Park Cafe lease should be put up for tender...
QP peeps... The lease for the Queens Park Cafe (London, NW6) is due to expire late 2012... The City of London Corp has decided not to retender the lease, but to agree a new lease with the current tenant... Does anyone else have an issue with this...?!
I'm sure, infact I KNOW that there are plenty of able people in the community who could AT LEAST pitch their ideas to turn the cafe into something REALLY special, but apparently the governing bodies have made up their minds... After contacting Andrew Cotton, who handles the Cafe lease, his response was this...
I presume your interest relates to tendering for the lease of the Queen's Park Cafe. It was recently decided at the management committee responsible for Queen's Park not to retender the lease of the cafe upon expiry in late 2012. It is therefore the City of London's intention to agree a new lease with the current tenant and as such there will be no opportunity for other parties to take over the lease of the premises currently.

Do you think it's time the park cafe had a new 'lease' of life...?!
