A day-long session at Ealing Town Hall heard his questions being answered by Forum members and others who had submitted comments in the consultation which was carried out last November. This covered a range of topics on the general policies in the plan and on how they could apply to different parts of the town centre. This included the site covering 9-42 The Broadway, about which a separate public Inquiry is to take place in May.
The Examiner will produce his draft report by the end of March. He may make recommendations for changes to some of its proposals, and Ealing Council will have to respond in time for the final details to be settled by mid-April. This will include how wide the referendum area should be, when the plan goes to public votes of residents and businesses later in the year.
