Independents to be appointed to Alexandra Park and Palace Trust board

Sole trustee Haringey Council makes changes after consultation with local people

The Alexandra Park and Palace Trust will appoint independent advisers to its trustee board, following a review of its governance.

The charity is run by Haringey Council as sole trustee, and its board is made up entirely of councillors. The authority has decided to bring non-voting advisers with new skills onto the board after a consultation with local people suggested that the board should be independent.

Pat Egan, chair of the Alexandra Park and Palace Trust board, said the council's goal was to have "an independent board and a charity independent of subsidy". The trust gets £2m a year from the council.

Jacob O'Callaghan, a local resident and member of the Save Ally Pally campaign, said most people wanted the board to be completely independent. "These are nothing more than cosmetic changes," he said.
