Conservation under threat?

The Conservation Policies of Ealing Council are instrumental in keeping our estate looking good so it’s important for us to pay attention to how those policies are being applied in other conservation areas. A planned large development in the heart of Ealing, that many believe will be detrimental and out of scale with the town centre, is now proposed. It would be worrying for us in Brentham if the principles of conservation policy are being ignored by the Council.

Read the article from the Save Ealing Centre group.

AGM – postponed

20th October 

Unfortunately we have had to postpone our AGM, due to the unavailability of our planned speaker, as well as some key officers.

We have decided to hold over the AGM until early Spring next year, which will still be within 9 months of our August 2016 year end. More details will be announced in due course.
