Limo site to become available

Hummerinteriorsml5b15d A site presently occupied by a Limo rental company may be available for other uses after a ruling that sees the present occupier forced to leave.

Following a ruling by the Planning Inspector, A1 Exotic Limousines face a £20,000 fine if they continue to operate from the site at Eastman Road, Acton, where they have been operating for two years without planning permission.

Ealing Council planning enforcement officers issued an enforcement notice in December 2007, but the company got a stay of execution after appealing.

On 23 September the planning inspector ruled in the Council’s favour and the company now has seven months to stop using the site.  If they fail to comply it is a criminal offence and managers could face a  £20,000 fine.

Councillor David Millican, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, said: “Companies can’t be allowed to get away with flouting planning laws.  The site is totally unsuitable for this kind of business and the company has been making its neighbours’ lives hell, with cars coming and going at all hours of the night.  I’m pleased the Planning Inspectorate upheld our decision that the company must leave.”
