Join CEPAC's Fight
It’s four years since Ealing Performance & Arts Centre set up CEPAC to campaign for independent performing arts facilities in the centre of Ealing. This followed the decision of Ealing Council not to go ahead with our plans for an arts centre in the Town Hall.
CEPAC has now reached a major milestone. Our aims have been adopted as part of the new Central Ealing Neighbourhood Development Plan*. This Plan has been formally sent for independent public examination, and if approved will be put to a vote in a binding local referendum.
How can we afford it?
From April 2017, all large new developments in the town centre have to pay a £100-per-square-metre Community Infrastructure Levy. At least 25% of this must be spent on facilities agreed with the local community.
Because of the amount of large-scale development likely in Ealing over the next few years, the Levy could create a multi-million pound fund.
That fund could help make a performance and arts centre happen.
How can you help?
It needn’t cost you anything. While we welcome a contribution of time or money, public support is crucial. Just give us your backing by signing up to our email list at http://eepurl.com/vHwIP.
You can also help by publicising our campaign. Our new flier (see it here) is being distributed at events where we can raise support. Email to tell us where we could do this.
