The Victoria Hall Trust
The Victoria Hall, the Princes Hall below it and the adjoining spaces have belonged to the Victoria Hall charitable Trust since they were built in the period 1897 to 1914. Ealing Council now wants to dispose of the property as part of a long lease to hotel developers Mastcraft.
After many months, the Council's General Purpose Committee, which has acted as Trustee since December 2017, has to make a decision on whether or not to support the proposal by Ealing Council to include the Trust property in the Mastcraft deal.
It is CEPAC’s view that there are several reasons to reject the Council proposal, and we have submitted a detailed rebuttal of the Council's proposals. The consist of a full report and three appendices which you can read through the links below.
Appendix 1: Friends of the Victoria Hall
Appendix 2: History and Extent of the Trust
Appendix 3: Plans of the Trust area
We believe Ealing Council should be told to look at transferring the responsibilities of the Trust to a new independent set of Trustees, similar to those who have so successfully transformed Pitzhanger Manor. The final decision on whether or not to approve the Council's plan rests with the Charity Commission, which will decide the application once it has the final submission from Ealing.

Together we can make it happen.
