Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

MANY will be aware of the long-term issues at our major Charitable Trust nearby. The problems of the un-reformed council committee known as Alexandra Palace "Trust Board" may be summarised thus:


  • Lack of continuity and long-term vision
  • High turnover of chair and Board members
  • Highly politicised decision making
  • Lack of non-political/independent perspectives
  • Risk of commericially senstive papers in the public domain
  • Skill set of Board limited
  • Structure ineffective and ambiguous
  • Questions over 'going concern' status
  • Lack of trust and high levels of scrutiny


This is not my listing. It appears in a (public) report presented to the Board on 2 March last year, entitled The Way Ahead – Governance Review and Vision.


This list was derived from the "Trustees' Away Day" and the "Stakeholder Forum" and were presented as the main barriers to sucess for creating a sustainable venue for future generations.


While I wouldn't agree with every item on the list, it nonetheless represents the most honest appraisal of the chronic issues I have seen emanating from either the Board or a Board employee I have seen.


Note the date. The lack of action, result or conclusion speaks for itself.
