Dicken’s Yard gets final go-ahead

Full planning permission for the St George redevelopment of Dickens Yard in Ealing has been granted by Ealing Council.

The decision of the councils planning committee has also been supported by the Mayor of London. St George can now proceed with the project to create 698 homes, 22 shops, and a new community hall and Town Square that the Council hope will “transform the centre of Ealing”.

Councillor David Millican, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport said: This marks a crucial step in our regeneration not just of Ealing, but of the whole of the borough. Given the current economic climate it demonstrates Ealings strength as a location. Dickens Yard will play a major role in our areas future success, creating homes and jobs, improving shopping facilities and boosting our local economy.

Scaffolding is now being erected to allow demolition of the old Town Hall Annex and clearance of the site to start. The Dickens Yard car park will remain open during demolition and the Councils Perceval House car park will be open for public use in evenings and weekends from the beginning of December.

Groundwork on the new development is expected to start in March 2010.
