Green Man Lane Estate

This 11.5 acres site immediately to the north of the Ward houses 464 flats built in the 1970s. It has been poorly maintained over the years and the Council now wants to demolish it; sell the land to a property developer; and build 721 homes on it, but little else. Planning Applications have now been published by Ealing Council. I produced a very hurried assessment of the plans on the News Page at Only 42 days has been allowed for public consultation. Rushing these applications seems very strange given that if they were to be implemented the new GMLE would be the largest central Ealing area development in living history .I worked extensively on the WEN response to these planning applications. This can be viewed at My personal response can be viewed here. Of the many deadlines for comments to Ealing Planners on these applications the latest one appears to be 9th April, 2010.

I have campaigned for three years now for this site to be a mixed development with law and order, healthcare, educational, play, community, retail and business unit facilities. For a complete history of the site and the development so far see the ‘Green Man’ page at

A similar demolition, sell off and build many more flats approach is soon be visited on Sherwood Close (or Dean Gardens Estate as Ealing Council seems to want to call it).
