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.

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.

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.

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.

The latest issue of the Council propaganda sheet thudded onto my doormat today. Lots of guff about the new Commissar and his loyal minions, all pledging to be inclusive. So inclusive that they removed the pages with all the councillor contact details from the back of the magazine.Maybe that was because they don’t want Bell’s smug mug in there, or it might be because all that information is ‘available online’ (which it is, of course). But then all the other information in Around Ealing is available online, which begs the question why keep the print edition? I was told by the former Commissar that it was for people who can’t access online information, yet there’s nothing in its glossy pages that indicates it’s £100,000 of our cash spent wisely every year.

Interesting article in the Guardian featuring 'analysis' from Julian Bell about the Mayoral election results and what they tell us about LTNs.
He seems to be getting a very obvious dig in at Peter Mason as the Commonplace consultation system presented a very different picture.
Although the central claim of the piece, that the LTNs were actually popular and a vote winner for Labour, is nonsense the analysis does raise some very interesting points.
You can reach a definitive conclusion about the popularity of LTNs based on Mayoral results. People will have voted on a whole range of issues and, time and time again research has confirmed that national politics determines how a large proportion of people vote in local elections.
The LTN wards were also the Remain supporting, predominantly middle class professional wards that did so well across the country for Labour so it is a huge leap to say the result was an endorsement of the former leader's policies particularly as he was actually implementing it in partnership with a Conservative government.
However, it cannot be denied that there is no evidence of a significant swing away from Labour as a result of LTNs. While it can't be claimed that the results show that LTNs are popular it also is clear that they aren't the main issue most people in the borough are concerned about at the moment. The only firm conclusion these results can really bring us to is that it is wrong to be distracted by noise made by people on social media.

Are people aware of Ealing Planning Application no. 213916PNT for a 20-metre-high 5G Tower to be erected at the Popes Lane/Lionel Road entrance to Gunnersbury Park? It does not appear to have been widely publicized (what a surprise!). I've only just heard of it through a neighbour and the closing date for objections is 1st July. So, unless you're happy to have a monstrous eyesore, twice as high as the houses, visible to the whole neighbourhood, with the attendant health and nature concerns over 5G, at the entrance to a Grade II Listed Park, register your objection quickly at:tinyurl.com/44vn6wyn

The grass is not even being cut in the Ealing parks.This makes it harder to socially distance from people.People all trying to pass each other on the narrow paths surrounded by waist-high grass.Children play on the same paths because the grass is too high around them.People with buggies cannot pass-by head-on because the paths are too narrow and the grass is too high to go onto.The rats (!) love the long grass.The long grass hides rubbish too.Sometimes even broken glass. And dog poo and much worse.Where are the children to play and the adults to exercise in Covid?You would think the council would try and keep the green spaces usable in Covid so you could walk about?

A chancer has put forward proposals to build some more skyscrapers on the edge of Westgate just over the gyratory system but still technically in Ealing. Almost next door to the conversion of the Westgate office block into flats, the proposed development will be an eyesore from any angle. It will stand out like a sore thumb over the A40 from the Brunswick, Haymills and Brentham estates as the eyesore that is the north Acton station area moves west. The nearby Hanger Lane station struggles to cope on the Central line as it is, add in the Westgate development and now this monstrosity and it will collapse in the rush hour. There will also be even more cars on the gyratory at peak times which will result in gridlock. Those of us who saw this coming with unchecked immigration are not suprised, stop it now!

Mira Markova ● 65d0 Comments ● 65d
I don't travel along this stretch of the Uxbridge Road regularly enough to comment on the proposals which are detailed on the front page with any great authority but the thinking behind them appears sound.
It is certainly the case that if you are going to be delayed on this road it will be in the town centres and therefore it doesn't seem to be too unbelievable that the dual carriageways represent spare capacity that can be better used and there is a big win if cycling can be made safer and quicker.
It was interesting to learn that 80% of trips along this road are made by bus — presumably this is on a per person basis.
What that means is that these changes could go badly wrong if they have an undue impact on bus travel times. The council seem to be saying that the changes will be scrapped if bus travel times are affected 'significantly' but this is not defined.
My concern is that the more zealous of the pro-cycling brigade have often tended to quote quite misleading data when it comes to bus travel times when it comes to the recent Streetspace measures. We've seen statistics for whole routes for the whole day and then been told that any delays were minimal. The key data is for travel times within the affected sector of the route during the busiest parts of the day. A five minute delay in rush hour might be evened out over the course of the whole route but that is irrelevant to a bus user who has already got off. On a 20 minute trip that's a 25% increase in travel time which will encourage modal shift.
As anyone who has ever used a bus can tell you, relatively short delays can lead to buses becoming very overcrowded very quickly.
If the changes make travel slower and less comfortable for 80% of the users of the route then they are going to switch to other modes of transport but not all will take up cycling and many will use cars. In this case you risk the situation entering a vicious cycle — pun not intended — in which more traffic leads to fewer people using the bus.
To avoid this the council needs to accurately survey the opinions of bus users and drivers and treat the data honestly not cherry picking to present an argument for a pre-determined course of action.

How far have we got?It is no longer unusual to Take Your Own Bag Shopping. Some of us no longer forget to do so (or only very very rarely). It is still a problem though even though single use bags now have to be paid for.The pandemic has meant that even more plastic packaging seems to have arrived around produce. It makes it quicker to grab and go with our shopping but plastic actually retains the virus longer than other surfaces and we should wash our produce before eating it anyway.Many countries no longer want to take our waste plastic for processing. Together with the USA we are the worst for plastic packaging/single use plastic. When we discourage it here it seems it just encourages marketers to use it in countries who have worse facilities than we have to deal with it.There has been a lot of lobbying by a pro-plastics lobby.We don't need it on lots of things and should find and use better and less damaging to the environment and to us alternatives.https://topdocumentaryfilms.com/hawaii-message-waves/#comments

I was surprised to learn from a Channel 5 programme tonight that Christie would often come and stay in Ealing with a great-aunt in her youth. Oddly, whoever wrote the script claimed that Ealing was a model for Miss Marple's St Mary Mead. Ealing is many things but it's never been a quaint country village, not even in the 1900s.

Bad news for those out there thinking that adding multiple entries on the council’s Commonplace LTN “consultation” website, either for or against, might sway the result one way or the other. They know who you are. It’s not just ANPR cameras watching you, it’s also their IT systems. Extract from Ealing Council’s Report for Action/Information, Item 14: COVID Emergency Low Traffic Neighbourhoods – Interim Assessment, item 3.1.1 :“.........there is a significant level of duplication, as many individuals have written multiple emails or added multiple entries on Commonplace.........The final reports intend to analyse the entries to account for this.”

Whoopy do, can hardly wait. As with gaudy coloured hire bikes that are left anywhere, these little playthings will end up creating an eyesore and another trip hazard for residents. I was walking down Longfield Avenue last week when one of these scooters squeezed past me on a narrow pavement. The female rider couldn't have been any older than 15, no helmet and no prior warning she was coming. I've seen them on pavements, underground station platforms and occasionally on the road. I've seen them with two teenagers on one, parents with small children on them. Without enforcement, it's a no from me

Most LTN streets and former streets as well as distributor and main roads have been installed with basic road monitoring cables. installed by A-T-R Ltd of York St W1.However the nature or indeed the instigator of this survey seems to be rather clouded and so far to glean any information requires a Freedom of Information enquiry. Enquiries to both LBH and LBE have so far resulted in no response whatsoever.All the installations in both Ealing and Brentford were at the same time. But several streets in remaining LTNs that have had steep increases in local traffic levels just trying to get in and out of their neighbourhoods have been omitted.But it all points to TfL, who also do not wish to discuss " matters of internal confidential and commercial nature". Rather odd.However what kind of survey results will clickers get?South ealing Road still has road works causing disruption, currently additional resurfacing adding to that.Swyncome Avenue remains closed with no sign of the roadworks that would render it impassable in both directions.Windmill Roads 1 week closure now has signs saying 8 weeks at both locations.Several small streets like Trent Ave have had road closed signs with minuscule works which would never require closure. ROAD CLOSED signs all over South Ealing placed where there are no closure and incorrect as it's only from 8pm but causing all manner to traffic to deviate unnecessarily.Areas where road works are causing excessive and extensive delays and exacerbated by LTN blockades not having them temporarily removed to allow even local resident access.Yet the very reason for the removal of LTN 21 was for that very problem.It's either monumental incompetence by Highways executives or is it a deliberate bit of gerrymandering to create a false picture and maximise traffic problems?Either way with all this created disruption, it's simply not going to make any survey have and credibility or valid illustration.So have these authorities, smarting from the backlash now resorting to subversive tactics and collusion?

After all the problems associated with the travellers residing on the Warwick Road section of Ealing Common, we now have an even bigger problem.A group of about 25 caravans arrived sometime late on 21 July and have taken up residence on Ealing Common itself. In the space of less than 48 hours, there are now numerous mountains of rubbish on the Common, one of which (from a safe distance) appears to include tree boughs (presumably ripped from trees on the Common). They are also 'understandably' driving across the Common from their caravans to get to the road, with no regard for people sunbathing/playing on the Common.With all the legal hoops the council have to go through to move them on, they will undoubtedly be there for many weeks. Research suggests that these are the same travellers that 'blighted' Norwood Green for many months.
