Ealing residents are objecting to a proposal from Clarion Housing that would see the historic Twyford Abbey site located in West Twyford being built on with 326 flats spread across the site in seven blocks. The more than 1000 year old Twyford Abbey and site is mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book.

On Ealing Council planning application proposals, out of 256 comments received (as of 18 October 2022), 249 have objected to it.

Robin Chambers, who has lived in his house near to Twyford Abbey since 1982 wrote in his objection and has shared with EALING.NEWS what will be lost if the plans are approved. He sent photos of his garden to EALING.NEWS and said: “All the trees will be felled and the woods behind Brentmead Gardens. We will have a road running at the bottom of our garden with 24/7 traffic.”

A local campaigning group, Cap The Towers, is challenging Ealing Council to be “open, honest and transparent” over plans for The Verdean, a new property development set to consist of 990 new homes on the former Friary Park site of Acton.

The group claims that the Labour-run Council has been holding meetings and negotiations with the developers of the high rise towers which the public have been denied information about and say that a seventh tower is being planned.

In January 2022, in a video and statement from Council leader Councillor Peter Mason, he told residents of Ealing that “Our administration promised residents in May (2021) that we would be “open, honest and transparent.

Cap The Towers has claimed that the Council has been ignoring and not responding to residents concerns over Mount Anvil and Catalyst, part of the Peabody Group, plans for the development which is six acres in size and across the road from Acton Main Line station.
