No great surprise. Southern Grove and Thames Valley Metropolitan Housing are appealing against the Council’s decision to refuse permission for their plans to develop the site next to the new West Ealing railway station. (Read background here)
The very first plan from the developers proposed a 26-storey tower on this site. This was modified to 20-storeys after much local opposition. The Stop The Towers group organised a very effective campaign against what was seen as overdevelopment. Come decison time last October and the Council, somewhat surprisingly, refused permission. This will now go to appeal. This story has some way to run yet, so we will update this when we hear more.
