Another planning application (217146FUL) has been submitted to develop housing on a builder’s yard at the corner of Acton Lane and Bollo Bridge Road.

Permission is being sought for a part three, part four, part five-storey plus basement block of 32 flats and a terrace of 3 three-storey plus basement houses following demolition of existing buildings at 5-21 Bollo Bridge Road.

A previous proposal (210118FUL) for the same site was made last year but withdrawn. The latest designs reduce the number of flats in the development from 37 to 32, but do nothing to address the concerns of objectors to the previous scheme about the height of the buildings.

Residents have also expressed disappointment in the lack of publicity for the new application which only came to the attention of many when a yellow notice was spotted near the site on a lamppost. This person was one of the objectors to the previous scheme who says the council had assured them they would be notified by email of any new proposals submitted for the location. It is claimed that residents of Fletcher Road, Leythe Road, Copenhagen Gardens and Acton Lane are largely unaware of the revised proposal. Ealing Council places the official notices of planning application in The Gazette newspaper which is not in general circulation in the area of the development.

The deadline given for responses on the notice is for the 5 October but, it is understood that comments submitted after this date may be considered in the application process.

The building remains five storeys high and taller that nearby 300 Acton Lane which council planners had previously said set the limit for buildings in the area.

One of the objectors, Rich Berry said, “It will still dominate the streetscape and set a precedent for similar speculative developments.”
