We have good and bad news about our council in this issue. Ealing residents continue to battle the Planning Department who never seem to value Ealing’s heritage buildings. Yet, on examining the Council pay structures we find senior officers are modestly remunerated, compared to other boroughs! The Council continues to pursue our metropolitan open land at Warren Farm to bequeath to QPR Football Club (see www.savewarrenfarm.com); at least they appear eager to protect Northfields Allotments from a plan to build affordable housing association homes on that land. It is also heartening to learn that our Council Leader made a personal visit to the Calais Migrant Camp. This resulted in fourteen unaccompanied refugee children being resettled in Ealing, either through our Fostering Service or by being united with family members. They joined twenty five others making thirty nine in total. Room at the Inn indeed!
