However welcome the prospect of having a cinema within easy reach of central Ealing, the move doesn't do anything to address the lack of performance and community space in and around the borough.
This shortage will be seriously exacerbated when the Council goes ahead with its plan to convert much of Ealing Town Hall into a hotel, restaurant and flats.
CEPAC estimates that the closure of the Town Hall venues will displace some 54 regular community users.
The Council’s proposals make our campaign all the more relevant, and we are planning to launch a major survey in January into the needs of local cultural and arts organisations. So please continue to give us your support for an artistic rebirth for Ealing!
