Bolingbroke secured for community use

Building works are nearing completion at the former Bolingbroke Hospital site. A state funded secondary school, the Bolingbroke Academy, opened there in autumn 2012 under the Conservative's 'free schools' programme and a new health centre will open later this year.

Northcote councillors and Jane Ellison, Battersea's MP, worked closely with the various local campaigns to maintain the building in community use.
