Consultation

Consultation

As we develop our proposals for this important town centre site, we are keen to understand the views of local residents and businesses.

Update
(February 2020)

On 6 and 8 February 2020, we held our second public exhibition in the Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre. The event was extremely well attended, with over 1,000 local residents and businesses visiting over the two days.

We would like to thank everyone who came along and spoke with us about the proposals. We are currently processing the feedback and will be sharing a summary shortly on our Feedback tab. We are continuing to meet with local groups and residents ahead of submitting a planning application in Spring 2020, so if you would like to meet with the project team, please do get in touch with us on percevalhouse@kandaconsulting.co.uk or 020 3900 3676.

Previous update
(October 2019)

Following our public exhibition in June 2019, we have spent the past four months meeting with local groups and residents. We are currently assessing the feedback we have gathered during this time and developing the design of our proposals further.

Over the next couple of months, we will undertake a series of events including library pop-ups, drop-in meetings with local groups, and workshops with local young people. During these sessions, we will be further developing the public realm, commercial offer and materiality of the scheme with local people.

Alongside these exciting civic engagement events, we will also be holding a second round of meetings with local amenity groups so that we can respond to the feedback that they raised over the summer.

Following our civic engagement and further meetings with local groups, we will finish developing our proposals and hold a second public exhibition. At the moment, we are planning to hold our exhibition in February, before submitting a planning application in March. As soon as the date of this is confirmed, we will send a flyer to local people and publicise the date on the website.

If you have any questions about the proposals or would like to meet with the project team, please don’t hesitate to contact us onpercevalhouse@kandaconsulting.co.uk or 020 3900 3676.

Previous update
(August 2019)

We held our first public consultation events on our emerging proposals on 27 and 29 June 2019 in the Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre. The event was extremely well attended, with over 800 local residents and businesses visiting over the two days. We would like to thank everyone who came along and shared their views on the emerging proposals. The feedback we collected at the events has been extremely useful as we develop our proposals further and you can view a summary in our Feedback tab.

We have spent the last couple of months meeting with local stakeholders, including neighbouring residents’ associations and amenity groups in Ealing. We will be continuing to meet with groups into the Autumn, so please do get in touch with us on percevalhouse@kandaconsulting.co.uk or 020 3900 3676 if you would be interested in meeting with us.

We are currently assessing the feedback from the public consultation and meetings with key stakeholders including the GLA, Historic England and Ealing Council. We will be using this feedback to develop the proposals, before holding a second exhibition in Autumn 2019.

At the start of September 2019, we submitted a request for an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) scoping opinion, which is a standard procedure prior to the submission of a planning application for a major development. The purpose of this is to determine which environmental issues (e.g. noise, air quality, overshadowing etc.) should be considered by the EIA. The outcome of the EIA will then be reported in an Environmental Statement that will be submitted with the planning application. The Scoping Report will be publicly accessible to view via the Council’s website. It contains a great deal of information and within this you will see that the quantum of development identified is slightly greater than we have discussed during recent engagement. This is so the scoping request more than covers the proposed quantum of development and it does not represent the precise amount of development that will be proposed at the planning application stage. The Council will have a five week period in which to consider the submitted Scoping Report, before issuing a formal EIA Scoping Opinion which GTP (now known as Vistry Partnerships) will need to take into account as it prepares the Environmental Statement to be submitted with the planning application.
