At the Cabinet meeting tonight the topic of Warren Farm was not on the agenda. After the call in instigated by the call in earlier in the year a report on its future was promised in October, then November and more recently December but no Cabinet report appeared.

This has led many to believe that the Labour Councillors are arguing behind the scenes on Warren Farm's future. Some plotting to have a football club, run by a relative of the local MP, sited there and others wanting to keep the land free of any activity like sporting pitches.

Liberal Democrat Leader of the Opposition, Councillor Gary Malcolm said: "Ealing Council should be clear before we end the year that it will not build on the grassland nor damage it with a football or cricket pitch, given the need to protect the whole site so that species like the skylark can be protected. There are plenty of other sites for sporting grounds in the borough. I have called for a meeting with the Council and interested parties but so far, they have chosen not to response. The silence is frustrating many."
