EALING NEEDS TO ALIGN WITH THE MAYOR’S URGENT ENVIRONMENT STRATEGY​

EALING NEEDS TO ALIGN WITH THE MAYOR'S URGENT ENVIRONMENT STRATEGY

We are told that The Mayor’s Environment Strategy hinges on the preservation of green spaces. Warren Farm represents a vital opportunity to help fulfill this strategy.

Therefore, it is environmental vandalism to squander this natural asset without meaningfully assessing the decision first.

The London Plan identifies the need to protect biodiversity and to provide opportunities for access to nature. The Mayor’s Biodiversity Strategy sets out criteria and procedures for identifying sites such as Warren Farm for protection.

During a climate emergency, it makes no sense that Warren Farm has been ignored, and it is reckless to allow a development of this magnitude to proceed without considering the true ecological evidence and social impact of the loss of this irreplaceable vital site.

As the first country in the world to declare a climate emergency, and the first city to become a National City Park, we cannot be seen to rest on vacant words when intervention could create an invaluable and irreplaceable legacy for Ealing’s administration and future generations.

 

We must protect, improve and add to our outstanding green spaces as we aim to become the world’s first National Park City.​

    I agree it is time to urgently reassess the decision regarding Warren Farm. The decision to let out the land for redevelopment was made before a climate emergency was declared by Ealing Council, the London Assembly and the British government. Because of this all decisions made before this emergency was declared should be subject to scrutiny and re-evaluation.
