Southall’s Poor Urban Environment

Southall Opportunity Area Planning Framework, a document produced by Ealing and the GLA, is supposed to be a road-map for regenerating Southall for the next 20 years. On page 25, the report comments that “On a daily basis, Southall’s streets are very highly used and the intensity of demand from the various uses/users is well beyond the physical space available. This causes problems in relation to traffic/pedestrian conflict. The quality of the urban environment is poor and lack inviting and usable public spaces along the high street in which to gather and socialise.”(section 2.39). The photos below (taken recently) would seem to confirm this finding.

    These photos are just a tip of the iceberg – Southall became the ghetto in Ealing may years ago. Due to the neglect by Ealing council things are steadily going from bad to worse.What has the council done to improve the poor environment and crowded roads pavements and spaces in Southall? Nothing, actually has been building more housing, and plans to continue Sdoing this until Southall explodes.
