The developer behind the Friary Park project are set to host public consultation events for its final phase (Phase 3), as it seeks final planning approval from Ealing Council.

Mount Anvil has invited nearby Acton residents to its two public consultation events on Saturday, 13 July from 11am - 4pm and Monday, 15 July from 6pm - 8pm, where the developer will receive feedback on its plans to bring three tower blocks to Acton.

Local campaign group, Cap the Towers (CTT), has been critical of the project since Mount Anvil's first proposals were submitted to the council back in 2019.

Mount Anvil want to bring three towers of 22, 18 and 14 floors to Acton with CTT arguing that the development is "financially unviable", lacks sustainable open space and that it could bring overpopulation to the area.

The developer say the public consultation will be a chance for residents to view proposals and share their views. The event is set to take place at Friary Park Community Centre, Friary Road, W3 6AF.

The Acton group argues the images below from 2019 are "far more extreme" than the artist impression it submitted alongside its original application.

CTT tells Nub News: "As every consultation with the people of Acton has shown, Mount Anvil's current and future regeneration of Friary Park is regarded as a disgraceful example of gross overdevelopment to satisfy developer greed.

"Peter Mason, the council leader, goes on promising that 'local communities need to lead the process of change in our Borough, not developers.'"

Refreshments and family activities will also be on offer on both days of the consultation.
