Our one year old cat Reggie is missing from the Acton Green area of Chiswick since the 23rd August and we're worried he could have wandered further. Reggie is wearing a light blue sparkling collar. If you have any information please could you let me know. Below is a link to a picture of Reggie:https://www.flickr.com/photos/193755075@N05/shares/20t3g6

Yesterday, (1st September) a much cherished silver bangle fell off my wrist somewhere between Ealing Broadway tube station and Pitzhanger Manor. If anyone found it I should be so grateful for its return!

Well known for her Ealing connection (not least her attendance at St Anne's School, Little Ealing Lane). Does anybody know in which Ealing street she lived (having moved into the borough in 1950)? Thanks.

What gives you the right to knowingly allow your aggressive and/or dangerous dog to run loose in a public place, off leash/unmuzzled?Also, please explain to me, even if your aggressive & potentially dangerous dog is on a leash, why I have to be constantly on the alert and ensure I go out of my way around YOU when going about my business in a public place?I'd really like to know, in case I'm missing something.

How can a project which should have been completed in 2018, and is now expected to be completed by July 2022, be described as "very much on target".

While not wanting to stir the pot, a cynic may say that the EBC is deliberately allowing Gurnell to fall into disrepair and then claim it must be demolished. Lo and behold they will then say the site is ripe for redevelopment and we have a plan.

So within days of Swyncombe ave finally reopening after a needless 8 weeks. LBH have removed and then reinstated the closure barriers with new signage.Gone is the "Closed for 8 weeks" to a new sign stating a different reason.So what is the justification this time of restricting the only wider than average straight and driveway lined street linking Boston Manor and Northfields and Little Ealing?Word is both Ealing and Hounslow are colluding to create a distorted figure for traffic in nearby streets including LTN21 to justify furthering their LTN desires which have taken a dent from so many quarters.They are planning new 'experimental orders' to effectively get their way by setting street against street - often known as Divide and Rule.Yet again, more Sly, Sneaky and reckless towards local people and their livelihoods and day to day needs.

Plus this gem .........But there was not a “statistically significant” drop in the number of cyclist injuries. This fell from 18 to 17, though against a 10 per cent Londonwide increase in bike casualties.No mention of course about the number of injuries from road crashes occurring in areas of increased traffic surrounding the LTNs. Maybe those figures aren't convenient? 😁https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/uk-travel-traffic-news-london-road-car-crash-b947328.html

Don't forget, if you haven't done so already to give your feedback on your local LTN. A list of the ongoing surveys is here:https://oneealing.co.uk/links-to-ealing-councils-ltn-surveys/

It starts today 16 July and runs until 8 August. The Count itself is just 15 min of your time - but there is lots of info and this would be a great activity to get the whole of the family involved in.Which butterflies do you know the names of and can identify already for instance?

Hello everyone, I am currently on an internship for a company that is looking to help solve a number of problems related to housing in London, many of which have been exacerbated by the COVID pandemic:(1) The availability and affordability of property for those looking to relocate closer to loved ones - made all the more pressing where they may have lost a partner as a result of the pandemic.(2) New ways in which people can release value to their homes without having to sell up.(3) Solutions which might work for those living in one of the many conservation areas in Dulwich and other parts of London.(4) Something that will appreciate in value - as opposed to that of garden buildings that will depreciate over timeThe company has come up with a way (excavation robots and a sinking concrete shell) to create living/working space underground allowing the vast majority of the garden to remain in use. They are starting off by building a self-contained under garden apartment with a sunken courtyard garden that should work as a home for elderly parents or grown up kids that would be closer to loved ones and significantly less expensive than trying to buy a property off the open market.What do you think of this idea?What problems do you see or concerns do you have?Is it something that you or someone you know might be interested in?Thank you in advance.

Has anyone else found the website this year a mare to navigate around?Click on buy tickets for anything and you're taken to comedy tickets and nothing else.Pretty poor and will surely effect attendee numbers????The council doesn't seem to have done much to promote it at all this year which i find odd......... perhaps too busy making sure there's enough flowerots blocking up the roads to care.

I myself don’t often visit this store as I’m based in Pitshanger Lane that meets my needs. But for people living in Central Ealing, it’s a bit of a blow surely. This talk of people using it daily rather than the weekly shop, well that’s a national trend much advertised by the press & TV. That’s not a purely Ealing shopping pattern.There will be fewer items & higher prices. Cynical little ole me thinks it’s the usual greedyitis at play.
Bettina Margaret Thwaite ● 55d13 Comments ● 52d
Probably the last hope that the 26-storey won't be built in the centre of Ealing has gone as the Secretary of State Robert Jenrick has declined to intervene. If he had there would have been a public enquiry which might have cast more light on exactly how this was allowed to happen. As Jenrick's track record shows he is relentlessly pro-developer this probably was not a huge surprise.

According to the Stop the Towers group the plans for a 15 storey tower behind the Art Deco facade of the old Woolworths building have been abandoned and the developer is now going to sell the site having cleared it.

The girl in the blue shawl is my daughter Corinne Day, I have a photo of Marevna painting the picture. Marevna painted two other pictures of Corinne which she gave to my mother-in-law. They are now with Corinne's husband. They were painted in 1975.

Just driven back from Sainsbury's in Chiswick, water, water everywhere.Yes it did rain a lot but the number of blocked drains doesn't help. Ironic that I went past south Acton where the old factories are being levelled to enable even more high rise flats to be put up. We have a council that can't do the basics right (sweeping the roads, gulley emptying) so they become property developers. Can't wait for Phillipa's response.

Ealing Council has unveiled plans to ‘rationalise’ its household waste recycling service to save money. This will mean the closure of the site at Sterling Road in South Acton.Residents are told that they can use the site in Greenford or travel up to Park Royal. Not exactly encouraging fewer miles in the car, is it?No doubt discussions are well underway for the redevelopment of the site with one of the council’s favoured property companies.My bet is on at least 25 storeys as the height of whatever tower replaces this much valued community amenity.

Ever since Ealing Planning Department stopped sending out Notification Letters giving 21 days in which to respond to planning applications nearby, the system of putting up the yellow Public Notices on lampposts has been less than perfect.Disregarding instances where developers have likely pulled them down, the Planning Department itself has not always acted sensibly to ensure that affected neighbours know what it being proposed at close proximity.In a case in Rotherwick Hill (part of the Haymills Estate in Ealing W5), an unneighbourly play tower & platform was erected without planning permission. Eventually, planning applications were made but the Council did not put up any Notices in the road where the adjoining back garden of an Ashbourne Close neighbour would be badly affected and where the neighbour had previously complained about the unauthorised structure overlooking their garden.Because no yellow Public Notice was put up in Ashbourne Close, the most affected neighbour was unaware of the latest application and therefore did not write in within the usual 21 days - only finding out that an Appeal to The Planning Inspectorate (PINS) had been lodged months later. Because the neighbour had not filed an objection at first instance, the rules did not allow her to respond to the Appeal!The writer contacted PINS to explain the situation which was made worse as the Appellant's Planning Consultants were stressing that the neighbour had not objected at first instance and therefore there was no problem!PINS however were not satisfied that natural justice was being observed and ruled that the affected neighbour should be allowed to make her objections.The Appeal was dismissed by PINS yesterday - please see at:https://www.dropbox.com/preview/AppealDecisionDismissedByPINS.13thMay2021.pdf?role=personalThis result vindicates the objection of the neighbour in Ashbourne Close - the road in which the Planning Department failed to put up a Public Notice!V.Mishiku - "The Covenant Movement" firstname.lastname@example.org

Our new council leader Peter Mason has apparently nominated England player Bukayo Saka for the freedom of Ealing borough. I know he is a Greenford lad but he missed a penalty for his country. The manager should never have asked him to take it I believe and has exposed the lad to the keyboard morons. However, the freedom of the borough is taking his new found position to the extreme.

Julian Bell Honesty Test. Update. I asked Bell a simple question over a month ago. It concerned the circumstances in which Mr Najsarek gained employment with Ealing Council? It was: “Did you already know anything of what appeared in the press on June 30 2016 in respect of Mr Najsarek’s behaviour in Bolton when you appointed him?” Bell must have known the answer. All he needed to say was yes or no. A dilemma. If he said “yes”, he would reveal that he had been dishonest with the people of Ealing when he praised Najserak’s wonderful record of public service. If you said “no”, he would confirm that Mr Najserak had successfully deceived his way into Ealing Council.A test of integrity for a public servant! Not Bell. He ignored the email. He was guilty of a LIE BY OMISSION. As an avowed Christian, Bell, I am sure, would have been familiar with the Epistle of St James, the origin of this concept. It was his obligation as a public servant to make himself accountable. He failed. It is was his obligation as a public servant to be honest. It is my opinion and allegation (which I believe is supported by the simple evidence of this case) that he is a public liar and, as such, unfit for public office. I have told him to understand that every working day from now on I am asking the same question. HOW OFTEN WILL JULIAN BELL LIE TO ANDREW FARMER? FIVE DAYS SO FAR – AND COUNTING.

Religion in the council chamber? NO THANK YOU.Did we all enjoy last week’s Full Council prayer meeting? Region should play no part in politics. It was not on the agenda. We would not have known what happened but for the YouTube relay of the event. How long has this been going on?

KHAN OUT NOWIt appears the London Mayoral Election will be going ahead.Khan is unfit to stand and should be removed now. On New Year’s Eve, he spent £1.5million of our money on a light show. It included an image of a clenched fist associated with the violent BLM Movement. That association apart, a clenched fist is a symbol of violence, of a threat of violence. I take threats seriously. Don’t we all? Khan needs to answer this question: Who are you threatening, Mr Mayor? Clearly, it is not safe for a man who has incited violence in this way to continue in office. OUT NOW.

I looked at the Ealing Council reviews on trustpilot and they are atrocious. I am currently in litigation with Ealing Council and would like to hear about your experiences with them. My main beef is lack of replies to legitimate contact and this also applies to local councillors
