In less than 28 days, we expect the Manor Road application to go to the planning committee for approval.

It might seem a while since nearly 2500 of us submitted our objections and although we’re yet to hear from the council, we strongly suspect we have just four weeks until the Planning Committee meeting. this means we have less than 28 days to convince our councillors to listen to residents. So this week we’ve sent every Ealing councillor a dossier with legal advice about why plans to build the controversial tower blocks on Manor Road should be rejected.

Our 25-page dossier includes legal advice from leading planning barristers at Landmark Chambers which states that planning permission for the scheme should be refused. It goes on to set out nearly 30 separate reasons why the application to build 21 and 14 storey high towers on a tiny plot at Manor Road by West Ealing station, should be turned down.

Will they read it?

With your help they might. Please email your local councillors, and the members of the planning committee and urge them to read the dossier. For a prepopulated email to Ealing’s Labour Councillors – click here. Please remember to complete the e-mail with your name.  If this link does not work for you or if you may prefer to write your own e-mail, the full list of Councillors is provided below.

What else can you do to help?

Now is the time for visibility more than ever. Councillors do travel around our area and Julian Bell was spotted cycling past the site last week. So if you can, do please put up a poster in your window. To print one out click here.

Many thanks.
