A revised scheme has been submitted by the developer St George and a consultation period starts today, ending on 13th October 21 days hence.
I got a notice from the council through my door today and saw notices on the street in Ealing Broadway too.
The application is due to be heard at a planning committee meeting to be held on 5th November.
If you want to make any comments you can do so here online.
This application has been pretty controversial with much of the running on behalf of the anti case having been made by Save Ealing’s Centre which purports to represent a wide range of groups. In reality SEC is a small group of activists with large homes in central Ealing.
Coincidentally I wrote to SEC three weeks ago today to ask for copies of its constitution and minutes. As a fully paid up member of one of the residents associations it purports to represent I figured I was entitled to see this material. I haven’t heard from SEC so I guess they don’t think public life should be transparent and open.
We don’t know who is behind SEC or what their objectives are. It seems they want to stop anything happening in Ealing. They may feel that this enhances the values of their properties but they are not speaking on behalf of the whole community.
