Campaign To Save Corner Shop Gets Backing Of MP
Angie Bray has written to Ealing Council about Marie's Store
The campaign to save Marie's Store in Cunnington Street has received the backing of local MP Angie Bray.
Locals have continued to sign a petition to save the corner shop from being demolished and replaced with flats. They say the shop, on the corner of Antrobus Road has been at the heart of the community for nearly years.
Angie Bray is supporting Marie and has set out her concerns about the planning application/proposed development in a letter to the head of Planning office at Ealing Council. The MP has received several letters and emails from constituents who are concerned at the possible loss of the shop.
In the letter to Ealing Council, she states that the local community in Southfields fear losing an important community asset.
" I very much hope that this aspect of the loss of a community asset will be taken into account when the planning decision is taken. But I also hope that careful thought will be given to the application for a two-storey residential building of three two-bedroom flats and whether this would be overdevelopment of the site in what is a neighbourhood with a very particular character", says Angie Bray in her letter.
The planning application to develop the building into flats can be seen on Ealing Council's website- reference PP/2013/1704.
