Residents in Weston Road living near a laundry business have launched a petition against what they claim is round-the-clock noise from the premises.

They claim their quality of life is so bad that some are considering moving into hotel accommodation.

The locals say the company, MacGill of Kensington,which is based nearby in Greenock Road, W3, has installed state-of -the-art industrial washing and drying equipment operating 24 hours a day which provides laundry services to London’s hotels. They claim the plant has created an incessant din-clearly audible from local streets.

Now the residents have started a petition urging the Ealing Council to take enforcement action.

Adam Hedelin says: ''Its like living in an aeroplane. How does one get planning permission to set this up? Its not a question of getting them to shut down at night, this needs a permanent solution. They need to sound proof the premises or move out.''

Corrie Corrigan says: ''This constant noise during normal working hours would be out of the question. Expecting local residents to live with it 24 hours a day 7 days a week is completely unacceptable. It should be stopped by the council immediately and the owners should find an alternative location for their noisy business asap.''

Ealing Council have met with MacGill's solicitors and are planning the next step with the laundry.

MacGill have so far refused to shut down the plant at night. We have contacted the company and are awaiting a response.
