Refugee groups fear they will lose offices
Palingswick House could change use under council's proposals
A number of voluntary groups in Hammersmith fear they may be forced
out of their offices as part of a premises review being carried out by
Hammersmith and Fulham Council.
These groups say they provide a vital service for people in Hammersmith and Fulham.The tenants also claim that the King Street offices were previously owned by the Greater London Authority, and were given to the borough when that body was dissolved, on the condition that they be used for charitable purposes.
The Council is believed to be looking at various options, including developing several "community hubs" which would provide better facilities for voluntary groups in the borough.
