Liberal Democrat councillors are inviting Southfield ward residents to attend an extraordinary online ward forum to discuss the access restrictions on Fisher’s Lane.

The meeting will take place on Monday 7 December between 6:30 to 7:30 pm.

The councillors say they will listen to residents’ feedback on the recent survey and analysis of the contentious traffic scheme and discuss if there are acceptable alternatives to propose to Ealing Council at an upcoming Cabinet meeting in January.

A recent survey by the ward councillors on the restrictions showed 75% opposition among ward residents.

They say that they had previously been told by council officers that the restrictions became necessary after Hounslow Council decided to impose similar restrictions on Turnham Green Terrace but the Fisher’s Lane closure remains in place despite the Turnham Green Terrace closure being suspended.

The councillors now believe the restrictions are likely to be retained longer term as part of a cycle ‘quiet way’.

Ealing Council recently installed a camera to monitor the site and said enforcement is due to start in the next week with warning notices rather than PCNs to be issued initially.

Liberal Democrat Councillor Gary Busuttil, who will be chairing the meeting, remarked, “Liberal Democrats can confirm that the Fishers Lane traffic restrictions will be reviewed at the Cabinet meeting in January. The meeting could lead to Ealing’s Labour party either retaining or amending the current restrictions. Lib Dems want to make sure that the Council understands the negative impact the scheme has inflicted on the Southfield community including disabled residents.”

Any resident who wishes to take part should email to receive details of how to access the virtual meeting.

Residents can email feedback on the restrictions to, or post them to the Highways Service, Perceval House, 14-16 Uxbridge Road, W5 2HL.
