Thank you to everyone who has emailed us over the last week with messages of support. We will try to respond to them all, but please forgive us if there’s a delay in replying.
Two ways to help us
The Stop The Towers team are always looking for active helpers, anything from delivering leaflets to using social media to get our message out and more. If you have time and skills to offer please email us; tell us what you can do and we’ll be back in touch. firstname.lastname@example.org
Whatever happens next we will need to continue our campaign work. Unfortunately this costs money so if you can offer even a small about to our fighting find this would be appreciated – click here. Remember every single penny goes into our campaigning activity to create a better area around West Ealing station.
Whilst we wait to see what is happening with Manor Road, Stop The Towers will continue to campaign for appropriate development that fits in with the local area. We are not against regeneration and new developments but want these to adhere to wider planning guidelines rather than having those ignored just to favour new housing regardless of any harm caused.
Over 1200 people watched the Planning Committee meeting live via the Stop The Towers Facebook page and e-mail links, with many more watching directly on the Council’s site. This is an impressive level of community involvement of which Ealing’s residents should feel proud. The video remains available (see below). This record of the debate makes it harder for the issues to be overlooked going forward. However it was concerning to hear Councillors complain of offensive language and intimidation in e-mails. Stop The Towers do not condone this.
Working together for a better vision for Ealing
It has taken an extraordinary amount of effort to stop the Manor Road Tower at this stage, and many people were angry by the way the proposal and others were being pushed through during lockdown.
We will be asking Ealing Council to work with the community and Stop The Towers to develop this site and the adjacent Hastings road site to provide genuinely affordable social housing, that’s both environmentally and socially sustainable, as well as being appropriate to the local character..
For details about developments at Perceval House, Gurnell, Elthorne, Arden Road car park, and many, many more, please visit the Stop The Towers Ealing website
Thank you for your continued support
