The planning application for the proposed Elthorne Skate Park has been submitted and local residents should already have seen consultation notices. You can see the application here and make your own comments.
The proposals have been found to be popular with 69% of the 1,134 people who responded to the consultation, see details here. Clearly they are not popular with everyone and it is understandable that near neighbours will be anxious that their immediate environment will be degraded by this new development. It is up to the planners and Ealingâ€™s parks people to come up with a workable, credible solution that addresses the concerns that have been raised in the consultation process. Now is the time for residents to make their issues known to the planners so that a sensible solution can be found. The planning consultation period ends 19th February.
