The Ealing Central and Acton MP, Angie Bray, is setting up a meeting on new plans for the Ealing Broadway station frontage.

In February, Crossrail agreed to review their original proposals after the glass frontage design (below) was met with overwhelming criticism.

Ealing Council appointed architects to try and improve the controversial plans.

Now, MP Ms Bray has been asked by Crossrail and the Deputy Mayor of London for Transport, Isabel Dedring, to set up a special meeting of the Ealing and Acton Transport Group to discuss the latest ideas for the frontage.

Community representatives will be able to see the plans and respond to the Crossrail team and Ealing Council officers before they move to the final design stage.

Ms Bray has also asked Crossrail to provide extra time so that after the meeting those that attended can brief the community organisations they represent and feed back the responses.

 The meeting will take place next week (April 24th).

Ms Bray said "I am pleased to be asked to help in this as I have always thought it essential that the community is more engaged in the design process.  What we have been asked to set up is a limited operation given the time constraints. Nonetheless, it is still offers a better opportunity than we have had previously to get local views included before everything is finalised. This is a chance for all the participants to steer the designs for the station frontage in the right direction for Ealing."

The full public consultation on the final designs is scheduled to start next month.
