- Simon Simon Bell signed Save Ealing's police stations 2017-10-07 12:44:34 +0100It is bonkers to close local police stations and police SNT hubs.
We need more not less visible policing.20 signatures
The London Mayor's plan to close Ealing and Southall police stations and our local Safer Neighbourhood Team bases is totally unacceptable.
Ealing is a large busy borough and will become busier with the coming of Crossrail. It is absurd for it to be left with just one police station at one end of the borough in Acton.
Funding for local police services has been cut by both the Government and the Mayor, while people are being put at risk.
The stations promote visible community policing and make reporting crime easier. Closing police stations and safer neighbourhood bases is a false economy. Forcing officers to spend hours commuting between distant police stations and their beat at the beginning and end of their shift, when they take a meal break and whenever they make an arrest, will cost far more than is saved by closing buildings.
We the undersigned call on London Mayor Sadiq Khan and the Government to keep Ealing and Southall police stations open and fund the service properly; and Ealing Council to stand up to the Mayor and the Government on this issue.
Petition to the new owners of the Ealing Cinema site: St George.1,078 signatures
Unfortunately the Ealing Cinema site has been sold to another developer AGAIN. In August 2016 it was announced that the site had been sold by Land Securiites to St George PLC, the developers of the still-unfinished Dickens Yard development.
Cllr Jon Ball said:
"Ealing residents demand that a new cinema is built as soon as possible, after this sorry saga of delay after delay.
"I have concerns about St George taking over the site. I have sought assurances that St George will be going ahead immediately to implement the Filmworks development that Land Securities planned."
Ealing has been without a cinema for almost a decade, and this is the second time the site has changed hands because the developer has decided not to start construction.
Will you sign our petition to the developers St George?
We the undersigned call upon Michael Bryn-Jones, Managing Director of St George PLC to make the construction of the already planned Filmworks scheme a priority, and to open the new cinema as soon as possible.
Note that the original petition text was "We the undersigned call upon Michael Bryn-Jones, Managing Director of St George PLC to make the construction of the already planned Filmworks scheme a priority, announce a completion date, and provide reassurances that there is still interest from Picturehouse Cinemas to run the venue."
