As residents and businesses settle into the new year and look ahead to the future, Ealing Council wants those who have not already done so to join the thousands of residents already taking part in Shaping Ealing – the big conversation on how you would like to shape the borough over the next 15 years.
Shaping Ealing is well under way and, since the launch on 10 November, there has been a fantastic response. So far, the Shaping Ealing survey has seen more than 6,400 residents and business owners taking part to tell the council how they really feel, sharing what matters most to them in their communities. There is still time to get involved and have your say.
The Shaping Ealing survey is just the first in a series of conversations and activities that will be taking place over the next few months, and this process will help the council learn more about your priorities in your local community. In our latest video on Shaping Ealing (see above), Councillor Deidre Costigan, the council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for climate action, talks about the vital importance of getting involved in Shaping Ealing.
Next summer, and following these conversations, a draft ‘Local Plan’ will be presented to residents and businesses on the future of the borough spanning the next 15 years.
This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in how the borough should evolve. A key aim of the big Shaping Ealing conversation is to listen and understand the personal priorities of residents and businesses to ensure that the borough meets the needs of everyone in it. The vital work of shaping Ealing cannot be done without the opinions and views of the people in it, so the more people that get involved, the better.
Future Shaping Ealing engagement activities will be publicised online on this website and on the council’s social media accounts. The draft Local Plan will be presented to residents in the summer of 2022.
