Ealing Common Boundary Measures Proposed

Plans to protect space from traveller incursions include closure of Warwick Road

Rubbish strewn over Ealing Common after previous traveller encampment

After a long history of use by travellers of Ealing Common, the council is proposing a range of measures to protect the open space from unauthorised incursions.

Encampments have appeared even after a borough wide injunction was obtained which gave the council extra powers to evict.

The plans are designed to ensure that changes are kept to a minimum to preserve the heritage of the area.

The proposals include additional knee rails to match the existing historic ones, planting new trees, installing gates and bollards and creating mounds at certain locations around the common.

It is also proposed that Warwick Road, which runs through the common, is closed off and converted to a temporary road with wildflowers and cycle paths introduced.
