The proposed development on the north side of Ealing Broadway which was to go to a planning inquiry is now on hold, as the site has been sold to British Land. The inquiry will not now take place.
I’m emailing to let you know that British Land has just purchased the above site from Benson Elliot. The planning application (P/2015/3479), which is subject to the Public Inquiry next week, has been now been withdrawn. This means that the Inquiry next week will no longer take place. Confirmation attached. This purchase means that we now have a unique opportunity to manage a broad slice of the town centre to create an even more accessible and attractive place for local people and visitors. We would like some time to consider how our ownerships in Ealing can work most cohesively and will be reviewing the options whilst liaising with key stakeholders.
I would appreciate it if you could let people involved in the Planning Inquiry next week know about this news. Please do let me know if you have any questions.
