Save Rare Arts and Crafts House (and 28 Trees)

A very rare 1912 Arts & Crafts house and all the greenery it occupies is at risk due to a planning application.

If we fail to preserve this, the house at 178 Church Road Hanwell, set in a conservation area, will be replaced by six flats at the front and two semi-detached houses in the back garden.

  • 80 per cent of the plot will be built on to house 26 people.
  • 28 mature trees, hedges, shrubs and all greenery will be destroyed.

Object using reference 201141FUL

The deadline for Standard Consultation is Wed 28 Oct 2020

Access to green spaces during this Coronavirus pandemic is vital to combat stress, climate effects and drainage. It contravenes Ealing’s new climate emergency strategy to plant trees and hedgerows to increase biodiversity and carbon capture.

Ealing North MP James Murray has objected, and we have support from Ward Councillors. Your response will count to get a referral to the Planning Committee.

Thank you for your help!
