Ealing Road development likely to attract opposition at Planning Committee tonight

Brent Planning Committee will be considering an application for 245-9 and 257 Ealing Road, HA0 1EX this evening.

A partly 9 storey and part 10 storey building will replace the present two storey buildings (above) with 92 flats: 7 studios, 45 1 bedroom, 26 2 bedrooms and 14 3 bedrooms.

The Plough, a large pub, would be replaced by a smaller pub on the ground floor.  The pub would be run as a commercial enterprise with some community access by agreement.

Unusually a supplementary report has been tabled LINK with many additional and altered conditions.

The application has attracted 42 objections, mainly from residents of the new blocks recently built in the area who see the development as threatening their amenity. LINK

Yet another planning application which does not meet the standards that are meant to be required for new developments (far too high a density as compared to the London Plan standards, not enough space between the planned buildings and nearby buildings, too much daylight blocked from the windows of flats on the lower six or seven floors of existing neighbouring blocks), but Planning Committee is still recommended to approve it.

What sort of Brent are our Council allowing to be built for the present and future residents of the borough, and why are they allowing it?
