Since Freshways were first established on Eastman Road, Acton there have been issues relating to noise nuisance and additional traffic. Over the years Ealing Council have successfully taken the Dairy to court, most recently this month when the Directors were fined over Planning Enforcement issues. An on-going concern is the parking of large milk container trucks parked on The Vale. It is now a regular occurrence that up to six trucks are parked at any one time, particularly late afternoon and evening.
Councillor Andrew Steed said: "We are working with local resident associations and liaising with Council officers and now the Police. However it is proving difficult as there is a lack of enforcement legislation to immediately deal with the problem. More meetings are planned and we urge residents to continue to report issues caused by Freshways to the Council who can use the evidence when they take further legal action."
