We lost and having obtained advice from a senior planning barrister we have concluded there is no realistic scope for appeal.
This is a bitter disappointment to us all including the many people who supported this case financially or with their time.
However, our efforts were not entirely in vain, in the process of the public enquiry the inspector was damming in his criticism of Ealing Council.
The process also exposed how vulnerable Ealing now is to uncontrolled development due to the Councils failures on planning policy and inability to provide basic statutory information on housing supply.
Given that there has been a change in leadership in the Council, and that it did defend this appeal, we are talking to the new leader about the way forward.
While we may have lost Manor Road we are not prepared to surrender our whole borough, which now seems at risk of massive over-development.
Even more reason to Stop The Towers.
We will keep you updated on the situation and and developments.
