Correction: The planning reference code held up in the video is incorrect. The correct code is 182180FUL. There is now a complete set of documents to view on Ealing Council’s web site
A2Dominion have submitted their plans to Ealing Council for the construction of a 15 storey residential block that’s set to replace the ‘Woolworths building’ in West Ealing.
The subsequent demolition of the aforesaid currently existing building will also include the tearing down of its art deco facade, which itself dates back to 1926. As recently as 2015, local residents have voiced their opposition to the facade being altered/removed.
The tower itself is set to consist of 120 apartments, ranging from studio to 3 bedroom apartments. Moreover, current plans outline what’s set to be a relatively dense development – at 571 residential units/hectare. This vastly exceeds the current London Plan.
Here we speak once more on this topic with the Chair of West Ealing Neighbours, Eric Leach. In this interview we discuss the current art deco facade, to what extent the planned development will fit into the local area, and of course what locals need to do if they wish to have their voices heard on this matter.
Residents and local business owners alike are free to submit their comments to the Council’s Chief Planning Officer, though this must be done before 8th June 2018.
