|Have Your Say on Pitzhanger Manor|
Public meeting on 22nd June
You're invited to attend a public meeting on Saturday 22 June to find out more about the future of Pitzhanger Manor but places are limited so register your interest now.
Plans are underway to restore and develop Walpole Park’s manor house to its former glory. The meeting will allow local people to view draft plans and hear from the architects and the Pitzhanger Manor Trust, who will present the details of the proposed works.
In April 2012, Pitzhanger Manor was awarded a first-round development grant of £275,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to conduct surveys, consultation and to develop plans to restore Sir John Soane’s historic country home. A further bid of £4 million will be made towards the end of 2013 to carry out the restorations, with an announcement due in 2014.
Leader of Ealing Council and member of the Pitzhanger Manor Trust, Councillor Julian Bell, said: “I encourage all local people to attend this public meeting and take advantage of the rare opportunity to make a difference in the future of this iconic Ealing building.”
The meeting will take place at Ealing Green Church, The Green, Ealing, W5 5QT, from 2-4pm on 22 June. All residents are welcome to attend, however places are limited. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space by 20 June.
Residents who are unable to attend the meeting can view the plans at Pitzhanger Manor from 21 June – 21 July.
The presentations and feedback will also be available at www.ealing.gov.uk/pmgwalpole soon after the meeting. All comments and feedback will be welcome.
