Ealing residents and businesses have voted in favour of a new neighbourhood plan for the town centra area,

The public voted oh 12 October on the community-led plan - which is the first one in London and only the second one in the whole country.

The Central Ealing Neighbourhood Forum, a joint body equally representing residents and businesses, prepared the plan which was cleared by the Council to go to a referendum.

Ealing Council chief executive and returning officer Paul Najsarek, Ealing Council CEO announced the results

More than 16,000 residents and 800 businesses in central Ealing affected by the new Central Ealing Neighbourhood Plan had the chance to vote. The turnout was 3,000.

92.2% of central Ealing residents had voted ‘Yes’ to the plan and 91.5% of businesses.

CENF say the policies will help protect the Ealing town centre conservation areas and its historic architecture and green spaces, whilst allowing sensible redevelopment, good transport links, decent retail and more.

Future planning applications will be required to take account of the Plan’s provisions.
