Visions for Northolt

Ealing Council is encouraging residents and businesses in Northolt to get involved in a project that will help shape the future look and feel in the area.

The project, Visions for Northolt, presents an exciting opportunity for the whole community to get involved. You can take part in online workshops to have your say and share your thoughts and ideas for improvements and enhancements to your neighbourhood and the wider Northolt area. Visions for Northolt will also encourage Northolt’s younger residents to contribute their ideas through artwork.

To help deliver the project, the council has commissioned external consultant companies New Practice and Resolve, who have designed a dedicated website that launches this week. You can register interest and start to take part in the activities via the website, which will also include regular project updates and online tools to use.

Ealing Council’s assistant director of growth, Connor McDonagh, said: “I’d really encourage people to get involved in this exciting project. It’s your opportunity to have a say about the area you live, work or study in, and to work closely with us to bring about investments that will make positive changes in the environment and wider Northolt community. It’s also a good way to get younger residents more actively involved in thinking about where they live and better understand how they might wish to be more involved in the decisions that help shape their environment, and we’d really welcome their input.”

The feedback will help the Northolt community and the council to collectively develop a shared vision for the future of Northolt and set some guiding principles on the how the area should be invested in, responding to what is missing and what is needed. The project will explore a range of themes including transport, housing, and the local economy.

The project is aimed at Northolt residents, businesses, and schools and the multiple community and stakeholder groups that are active in the area.

An outdoor community event is planned for the end of June to mark the end of the consultation and to learn more about how their input will be used. Further details on the event will be made available, and all arrangements will be in line with any government COVID-19 restrictions in place at that time.
