This section aims to provide key facts about new, primarily residential developments in Ealing from the point at which plans are first put out to public consultation. The aim is to raise awareness and provide residents with the information necessary to enable them to express their view. With the number of developments in the pipeline, the focus is on larger scale projects likely to have the greatest impact.
The developments covered in this section are organised by area as follows:
It is difficult to keep track of the volume and nature of development taking place in the borough, still more to be aware in time to voice an opinion. Reasons for this are that:
– Ealing Council no longer notifies residents of planning applications by letter, but relies on yellow planning notices placed on nearby lamp posts.
– Planning applications for the many large-scale developments in the borough are accompanied by a bamboozling number of documents that are poorly labelled and listed in apparently random order in the planning section of Ealing Council’s website.
