The results of Shaping Ealing, one of the borough’s biggest ever public listening consultations, are now in and feedback from across the seven towns is published today.
More than 10,600 local residents and businesses, and people who visit the borough, took part in one of the biggest consultations that has taken place here. The Shaping Ealing survey has given Ealing Council the opportunity to understand people’s thoughts on local facilities and communities.
Your views shape Ealing’s future
Having this feedback has assisted the council in understanding how people think and feel and will assist in the development of plans and policies, that will guide future development and investment in each of Ealing’s seven towns.
Council leader Peter Mason said: “Ealing is changing. It always has. It always will. Our task, together as residents, businesses, and people who care, is to shape it to be the kind of place we want it to be.
“You have told us in your thousands, ten thousand in fact, about what you love, what you hate, what needs to be different and what needs to stay the same.
“Thank you. Today we’re publishing the results.”
Feedback to guide future development
The feedback from the survey and community engagements is already being used to help shape important decisions in the borough around priorities, policies and investment. And the council has committed to continue to engage with people on these issues.
Councillor Shital Manro, the council’s cabinet member for good growth, extended his thanks to those who took part in the consultation: “We are sharing a summary of the findings of the survey and you can see whether your views are shared by others across the borough and in your individual town.
“Everyone can have a say in shaping the borough. As we continue to develop policies and priorities for all seven towns, we will be using a range of different approaches to make sure that everyone can be involved and engaged in shaping our borough for the future.
“Your views are already making an impact. The feedback you have given is already being used to help shape important decisions around priorities, policies and investment throughout the borough.
“Thank you again to all those who took part and shared your views.”
