Youth Centre Data by Council

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Haringey Borough Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Could I please have a list of council run youth centres and clubs with their address, which have operated at any point between 2010 and 2019, along with dates of opening and closure if they started or ceased operation over the period.

Information in the form of an excel or csv format would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

Dear Mr Datta, I regret that given the passage of time and the turnover of staff since 2013 we are unable to provide you with a precise month.

Dear Deborah,

After receiving your response I tried to elicit the reopening date of Bruce Grove youth centre from local public newspapers. I came across the following FOI request which details the centre's opening times in 2012, on a date when you have stated that the centre was closed.

Please could you look into this and find the correct dates of closure and reopening, given the ones you have sent me are incorrect.

Yours sincerely,

Nikhil Datta
