The Plan, which is being prepared by the Central Ealing Neighbourhood Forum, has as one of its key objectives the provision of new leisure and recreational facilities to serve the large increase in population projected for the town centre.
It identifies as a priority need for the area “an arts and community leisure facility providing a multi-purpose venue”. This would accommodate a 250+ seat auditorium/sports hall with a minimum of two indoor sports courts, gym and dance facilities, changing rooms, storage, meeting rooms and associated administration with disabled parking facilities.
Supporters of CEPAC’s vision are urged to comment on the Forum’s plan by taking part in the public consultation. Details can be seen at the web site www.centralealingfroum.com, where there is a link to a survey. The views expressed there will influence the final plan, which will be put to a local referendum later this year.
