WHAT WOULD YOU CREATE ON WARREN FARM?
DO YOU WANT TO PUT NATURE FIRST?
Now that Warren Farm has been reclaimed back by nature, and the bio-diversity is incredibly rich, should we not be considering a “new deal for nature” by putting Nature’s needs first over corporate requirements, so we can protect Warren farm as a site of “High” ecological value in the borough, vital to residents health over the next 200 years and beyond.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT WITH EALING COUNCIL
TO SHARE A NEW VISION
Your opinions support our message to the council that we need to be working together to help them explore new ideas and other options, so they may undertake all due diligence to protect the land for future generations, and ensure we/they are meeting our/their moral, social and environmental obligations to Warren farm and residents of Ealing for the next 200 years.
Biodiversity loss is more than an environmental problem, it is a development, economic, social and moral issue.
A Green Infrastructure Task Force was established following the publication of the London Infrastructure Plan 2050, which sets out the infrastructure needs for London over the coming decades. The plan acknowledged that green infrastructure must be considered as an integral part of the city’s vital systems; as essential as the city’s transport, energy, water, waste and digital infrastructure.
The main imperatives to come out of the committees findings and the report were to:-
- Rethink Purpose
- Reframe Value
- Restructure Governance
- Release Funding
Jullian Bell leader of Ealing council has this to say about the report :-
“London boroughs are currently responsible for managing much of London’s green infrastructure and making the land-use planning decisions that affect its future. This report is timely; it provides a compelling case for the value and importance of green infrastructure and suggests new ways to make decisions about how it is managed and funded.” Cllr Julian Bell, Chair of London Council’s Transport & Environment Committee
We are thrilled to hear Mr Bell commit to the value and importance of Green Infrastructure having been a committee member on the Green Task Force committee. (you can read the full report the committee produced here ).
With Warren Farm being we believe the 3rd largest site of bio-diversity in the borough, perhaps its time to revisit the plans and protect its true worth to every resident in Ealing and London as a whole.
No comparable replacement for this loss of biodiversity is proposed.
When can we sit down and talk. Please email to arrange a convenient time to do that.
SHARE YOUR URGENT NEED TO PROTECT BIO-DIVERSITY IN EALING
Biodiversity is being lost at an unprecedented rate. According to a recent World Wildlife Fund Living Planet Report, the populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians have fallen by an average of 60 percent in just over 40 years.
Gerardo Ceballos, Paul R. Ehrlich and Rodolfo Dirzo
have dubbed this decline an
impending wave of extinctions and a “biological annihilation.”
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
The State of Nature report 2019 ranks the UK 189th out of 218 countries assessed. If we’re to increase vital biodiversity gain we must protect our green spaces from poor development decisions. @EalingCouncil #everygreenspacematters pls #ProtectWarrenFarm #WarrenFarmNatureReserve https://t.co/uUHRoDLb1Q
Our amateur recorders have been learning about grasses. Wall barley (Hordeum murinum) or as we called them as kids, flea darts! Much fun was had picking & throwing the bristly spikes which stick to your clothes. You’re it! #ProtectWarrenFarm #ecocide #WarrenFarmNatureReserve 🕊🌿 https://t.co/7iO7aCvvht
@EalingCustSer @CanLager @CanalRiverTrust @WildlifeEaling @CRTContactUs Thank you for looking into this @EalingCustSer Is there somewhere we can see which parts of the river bank are owned by the council? A web address link perhaps? It would be really useful to know for future litterpicks. Hope you’re keeping safe & well. 🕊🌿💚
“Globally, and on our doorstep, we need to work together to halt the loss of animals, plants and ecosystems. Our planet’s unique web of life is absolutely critical for our future health and prosperity. Chair of Natural England, Tony Juniper
Natural England are working with people across society including land managers, ecologists planners and developers who are on the ground protecting and enhancing our rich variety of life. Their work supports the important goods and services our biodiverse ecosystems provides such as food and clean water and carbon storage, but also the provision of education, recreation and heritage, some of which form part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals – all needed for good health and well-being.
