West Ealing wins funding from TFL

30 November 2017

West Ealing set to benefit from TFL 'Liveable Neighbourhoods' funding

Ealing has been announced as one of the seven London boroughs through the first round of a new multi-million pound funding programme, which will transform neighbourhoods across the capital into greener, healthier, more attractive public spaces.

The project focuses on West Ealing including improvements to the area covering ten indicators. 

The ten indicators are:

  • Pedestrians from all walks of life – London’s streets should be welcoming places for everyone to walk, spend time in and engage in community life.
  • Easy to cross – Making streets easier to cross is important to encourage more walking and to connect communities.
  • Shade and shelter – Providing shade and shelter enables everybody to use our streets, whatever the weather.
  • Places to stop and rest – A lack of resting places can limit mobility for certain groups of people.
  • Not too noisy – Reducing the noise impacts of traffic will directly benefit health and improve the ambience of our streets.
  • People choose to walk, cycle and use public transport – A successful transport system enables more people to walk and cycle more often.
  • People feel safe – The whole community should feel comfortable and safe on our streets at all times. People should not feel worried about road danger.
  • Things to see and do – People are more likely to use our streets when their journey is interesting and stimulating, with attractive views, buildings, planting and street art.
  • People feel relaxed – More people will walk or cycle if our streets are not dominated by motor traffic, and if pavements and cycle paths are not overcrowded, dirty or in disrepair.
  • Clean air – Improving air quality delivers benefits for everyone and reduces unfair health inequalities.

The proposed projects cover improvements to Uxbridge Road, Green Man Passage, Leeland Road, Maitland Road and also Dean Gardens.

In West Ealing has been liaising with the Council to establish a key role in the project team to help drive improvements and represent businesses throughout the process.
