“We know that Arts and Culture are a key part of planning the Ealing’s future, but what do people really want to see in the new Cultural Quarter?” said Nick Woolven, CENF Chair. “We need firm evidence of what will help bring visitors back into central Ealing, and what will
be commercially viable.”
The survey will be run by Purple Market Research, which is based in west London. Trevor Wilkinson, its Joint Managing Director who will be responsible for running the survey, lives in Ealing and has worked here, so he already knows the area well.
"This is a significant step forward for CEPAC," said John Hummerston, CEPAC's chair, "and something we have been working towards for some time."
The report will be available to all. Ealing Council is currently planning what should go into the Cultural Quarter, an area which lies between the old Empire Cinema site and Mattock Lane, and has already encouraged the running of a survey.
