Decision Day for the Gunnersbury Triangle Planning Application

Today (Wednesday 16th May) Ealing Council's planning committee will decide whether to allow a set of over 100 flats, rising to 8 stories high, to be built adjacent to the tranquil place of Gunnersbury Triangle.

You can see three pictures taken at the recent site visit by the planning committee on Saturday. I was informed that there were over 100 people attending the site visit and that this is the second highest number of residents attending this type of event:

The planning committee meets from 7pm in Ealing Town Hall and the public gallery is likely to be packed given the controversial nature of the application.

For those who are nor aware of the location and reasons why people are against it read on. It is located across the road from Chiswick Park tube station and a large number of residents and the well known botanist David Bellamy are against the plan as it will cause a lot of problems such as parking problems and harm to wildlife in the Triangle.

The development will be sited with almost no gap between the wall and the Triangle meaning there will be a lot of light taken away from the triangle grounds.

More than 1600 people have now signed the petition calling for rejection of the present application in favour of more sensitive development of this site and one which respects the special quality of the nature reserve.
