Facelift For Local Shops
The Avenue and Queens Parade to benefit
£1.5million is to be spent on improving 10 shopping parades in Ealing Ealing.
The parades’ upgrade programme will cover: The Avenue in W13 and Queens Parade in W5 as well as Greenford Avenue; Horn Lane; Ruislip Road; Oldfields Circus; The Vale (near Acton Park); Beaconsfield Road; The Vale (Hammersmith and Fulham borough boundary) and Lady Margaret Road
There will be street furniture improvements; new street signs; resurfaced pavements and footpaths; safer access for pedestrians and improved cycling and parking facilities.,
Councillor David Millican, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, said:
“This programme gives a much-needed facelift to ten shopping parades and shows the council is committed to regenerating the borough.
“If a parade is tired looking, it can have a negative impact on shoppers and affect the businesses that operate there. I’m sure these improvements will revitalise the parades and make them more user friendly for both residents and business owners.”
The proposed investment forms part of the council’s budget plans for next year and will need to be discussed at a meeting of the full council on Tuesday, 9 March.
If approved, consultation will take place with local residents and work could start in October and be completed by March 2011.
