Ealing Centre in Crisis - What Can Be Done?
Public meeting being held this month
BBC journalist Stephen Sackur has been invited to chair an important public meeting this month which will look at the future of Ealing Centre.
Housing is one of the main issues of concern. Ealing Council's Local Development strategy proposes that 1,917 new flats will be built in the centre by 2026. The London Mayor wants Ealing to build 940 new homes throughout the borough every year till 2026.
How can this be achieved?
Save Ealing's Centre (SEC), the alliance of 25 residents' groups has organised the meeting in Ealing Town Hall Monday 22nd February at 7.30pm .
Will French Chair of SEC says:
''This is an opportunity for local people to be heard. Too many decisions are being made by policy makers without reference to local opinion. The elections are coming up and this meeting will give us all the chance to hear from candidates about their future commitments to Ealing.''
Topics up for discussion include:
Local MPs and Councillors and would-be local MPs and Councillors have all been invited to the meeting.
This is your opportunity to publicly quiz local policy makers about the future of your town centre.
