Sandringham Mews

Sandringham Mews

Sandringham Mews is a 0.63HA area of land in Ealing town centre.  It is bounded by the Uxbridge Road, Bond Street and Broadway shopping centre. It is currently occupied by a range of small retailers, restaurants and cafes on street level and a surface level car park. It has the potential to be a mixed-use development with retail/creative/leisure at ground floor and residential or commercial above. Transport links are excellent with main line, underground and future Crossrail links at Ealing Broadway station. Key roads are the A40 and Uxbridge Road.

Eastern Gateway

Eastern Gateway

A key opportunity site which has great potential to be an ‘entrance’ into Acton High Street from Ealing Common on the Uxbridge Road.  The site is currently under-utilised and is in the ownership of a supermarket chain. This 1.3HA site offers real potential as a mixed-use development site for retail and residential. There is also the possibility of improving access to the town square.  Acton High Street has undergone major regeneration in recent years with the reopening of the new Oaks shopping centre and the town hall building as apartments.

Iceland, Quality Foods and 63-95 South Road

Iceland, Quality Foods and 63-95 South Road

A 1.23ha mixed use development appropriate to the town centre, including provision of a range of retail/commercial unit sizes appropriate to a variety of occupier requirements. The site contains a series of adjoining, low density retail and commercial units with substantial surface level car parking in a highly accessible town centre location. There is scope for intensification of this site, including the introduction of new uses, to help meet the retail growth which has been identified in Southall.

Broadway and New Ealing House

Broadway and New Ealing House

A 1.39ha site in private ownership currently used for retail, commercial, residential, West Ealing library, and a multi-story car park.  A more legible layout of this site is required featuring key town centre uses organised around a functional, welcoming, network of public spaces.  It has a large supermarket to the rear, which is attached to a seven-storey supported housing development which arches over Melbourne Avenue, and the library. The vision is to give a high street presence to the large supermarket and provide key town centre uses with an integrated and pedestrian friendly network of public spaces.

Ealing is one of London’s most culturally diverse boroughs, with more than 200 languages spoken every day in the streets and neighbourhoods of its seven town centres.  It is home to one of the UK’s best modern universities, the University of West London, the world-famous Ealing Studios, an eco-system of creative businesses, the office corridor which is the perfect destination for businesses, an eclectic mix of restaurants and bars, and it has an abundance of green and open spaces. 

Ealing is one of the capital’s best-connected boroughs as it enjoys unrivalled connectivity to Heathrow and the Thames Valley to the west and the West End and City to the east.  Its three underground lines and national rail services have been joined by the Elizabeth line – slashing journey times to all these key locations plus and eventually linking to the new HS2 terminal at Old Oak.   Its strategic location in London, large expanses of industrial land, well-educated workforce, excellent schools, and strong student base, make Ealing the perfect place to open and grow a business; it’s why Brompton Bikes, HBO and Ferrero are based here.

“As we continue our recovery, we are calling on the private sector and big businesses to play their part in supporting and nurturing our residents and small businesses, many of whom have been hit harder than most during the pandemic.

We have had great success delivering genuinely affordable homes for social rent and purchase. Very soon we will have exceeded our manifesto promise, with almost 2,700 new homes let at genuinely affordable rents.

However, Ealing will not become a dormitory borough. Our new local plan will help us make better use of our industrial land and town centres and create many opportunities for our existing businesses to grow and to attract new businesses to build a more resilient and inclusive local economy.

From those wishing to invest in the borough and to be part of our community-led regeneration programme, we will expect a clear commitment on engagement, listening and working with our diverse range local communities. We will expect their objectives to help fulfil our priorities of fighting inequality, tackling the climate crisis and creating good jobs and we encourage them to review our new guidance on tall buildings.  We want only the best development that puts the interests of our residents and businesses at its core and delivers the good homes and jobs that they deserve.

If you want to get involved, we want to hear from you and we welcome you to come and visit our town centres, areas of industry, green spaces and – most importantly our people.  Ealing is a great place boasting world-class heritage, beautiful architecture and a real sense of community and well-being.   If you genuinely want to enrich our borough, talk to us. In Ealing.”

Cllr Peter Mason, Leader of Ealing Council

  • Sustainability: Economic development must promote sustainable and green economy industries and initiatives. The council is committed to being carbon neutral by 2030.  It has planted more than 37,000 new trees since 2018 and is committed to rewilding and protecting our endangered species and wildlife.
  • Industrial land and affordable workspace: Ealing Council will secure, support and deliver industrial and affordable workspace to meet the needs of diverse and local businesses, create green and inclusive local economies and deliver good local jobs. This is part of the Industrious Ealing programme underpinned by recent Inclusive Growth, Industrial Workspace and Affordable Workspace studies. 
  • Ealing’s new local plan: Ealing Council launched an informal consultation in 2021, ‘Shaping Ealing’, to support our Draft New Local Plan. The feedback we got is helping us understand how people think and feel about the borough and to develop plans and policies to guide future development and investment in each of Ealing’s seven towns. Our formal Draft New Local Plan consultation, (regulation 18), is launching in autumn 2022. We will invite all our residents, businesses, and stakeholders to get involved in the borough’s growth and change for the next 10-15 years.
  • Town centres and businesses: Supporting businesses and high streets through initiatives including the High Streets Taskforce action plan to reactivate high streets, new public spaces and increase footfall; launching a new enterprise hub, supporting set up of new traders associations and business sector forums, working with BIDs.  Working closely with stakeholders to develop and implement a 20-minute neighbourhood framework for the borough across our seven towns and implement the Acton and Park Royal Creative Enterprise Zone programme.
  • Employment and Skills: To address the impact of the pandemic Ealing Council established two key partnerships in 2021 to support residents back to work. The Southall Jobs Partnership supports Southall residents in training, and employment and identifies local priorities and needs in terms of employment and skills.   Through the partnership, we have supported the delivery of Jobs Fairs, improved access to training and increased the promotion and delivery of their services to residents. The Youth Offer Partnership works with partners to deliver an exciting and collaborative education, training and employment offer for young people aged 16 – 30 that helps them to obtain the skills and experience they need to find quality employment and good careers, and to work together to reduce youth unemployment in Ealing. As a result of these programmes unemployment levels in both groups have decreased.
