While Ealing labour council is allowing the development of the 15 storey apartment block for the leisure centre they do not seem to be taking any active measures to support the local infrastructure.
At a recent Cleveland area meeting a labour councillor suggested that all Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) projects are initiated by the residents. In fact, in 2016 Ealing Labour Council started a rolling plan to introduce 21 new controlled parking zone (CPZ) consultations.
Are you next?
- Will you have to pay to park outside your own house?
- Will a CPZ in a neighbouring area make it impossible to park in your own street?
- Will displaced cars from a nearby area cause obstruction in a busy road?
In light of Brexit, European lawyer Steven Tupper has left the Conservative Party and joined the Ealing Liberal Democrats. Steven explains why he has jumped ship and is firmly behind our policies. Watch the interview here.
Tory councillors object to high-rise developments stating, 'A Conservative Coucil, (will) promise to stop massive overdevelopment, and there will be absolutely no more ugly tower blocks (in Ealing).

Will the local Tory councillors support their own party or the residents of Ealing?
In a recent noisy Cleveland Ward Forum the residents of Bellevue Road brought up the subject of the Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) which had recently been set up in the Kent Gardens area. The resulting displacement of parked cars is causing chaos in Bellevue Road and obstruction in Scotch Common.
The Labour councillors were unsympathetic. At one point someone asked "Do we have to have a bad accident before you take this seriously."
Funding for local police services has been cut by both the Government and the Mayor, while people's safety and communities are being put at risk.

Work has started on the long-awaited Ealing Filmworks scheme including flats and cafes as well as the cinema.
The estimated completion date has just slipped back by another year and we are going to have to wait until 2020. The saga continues.
These two pictures were taken a few minutes apart. Kent Avenue is part of a new controlled parking zone (CPZ) and Bellevue road, just the other side of Scotch Common is not. What has gone wrong?
Now that Ealing Police Station has no counter service open, the first step in closing the station altogether, the only police station open to the public in Ealing is in Acton.
