The fight to stop the Academy getting planning permission continues, even
though plans to build the 'pre-academy' for an initial 200 primary-school
pupils in portocabins on the site will now proceed. The fight to guarantee
local affordable access for the local kids to the football pitches on
Wembley Recreation Ground (in the shadow of Wembley Stadium) continues
alongside this aim to stop the academy being built, whether the latter
goal will be acheived or not.
