Walpole Ward Forum October 2019

Ealing Council replaced Area Committees with Ward Forums some 10 years ago. Originally each forum met four times a year and enjoyed a £40,000 budget for resident inspired projects. In austerity 2019Ealing Council style there are two per year and the budget is £20,000.

On 7 October 2019, an episode of the Walpole Ward Forum was played out at Ealing Green College. Exposurebox attended and recorded much of the ‘action’. This included most of the ‘Future Ealing’ presentation given by Ealing Council Chief Executive Paul Najsarek. For those who did not attend we hope this video gives you food for thought.

Anyone who would like to see the whole presentation, including the slides missing from this recording that talks about the financial context and the budget pressures that Ealing is facing due to a 64% cut in our government grant, is welcome to come along to one of our other ward forum presentations in October.

  • I moved to London three years ago. I live in a block of flats overlooking the wonderful Lammas Park which together with Walpole Park enriches the lives of the local community. I was horrified to hear about the commercial Parkour project at the little unpublicised Ward forum last week. I would like to be involved in any organised group that has been established to oppose it. please send me details.
