The Forum Chair, Tony Miller, said that the two main tasks were monitoring how the plan's policies were applied when new planning applications were made, and working to get our projects, called 'Recommended actions' in the Plan, put into effect.
The management committee is already looking at new planning applications as they are submitted. More importantly, we now have a chance of engaging developers in discussions before plans reach the stage of being formally submitted. We Town Council. We aim to have talks with Galliford Try, Ealing's partners in the redevelopment of the Perceval House site, before they are
too far advanced.
The meeting also looked at the list of projects (listed below), which we now aim to get included in the Council's list of infrastructure over the next five and more years. While a few can hopefully be paid for from funds allocated from levies on development ,l other sources of finance will also have to be found. Options were the creation of a charitable trust fro some projects, and the creation of a Town Council with its own power to raise money. More work is to be done on these options.
