Do not locate Ealing Fields High School at Place House

I am reaching out as a deeply concerned resident living in Northfields, Ealing London. A consultation took place on 28th March 2018, showcasing extensive plans of the newly proposed permanent site for Ealing Fields High School, located within Palace House accessed via Little Ealing Lane and Hollies Road.

Local residents have had the opportunity to give feedback but having expressed in detail our concerns we do not feel that any thought or care was given to the local residents that currently reside in the surrounding area. 

We all enjoy the calm and peacefulness of the environment that we are in, as we all lead hectic lives. 

So, I hope you can appreciate that the plans for the new Ealing Fields High School will absolutely disrupt our lives as we know it.

The outlined plans showcased an extensive and tedious 2-year construction site that would see the build of several imposing buildings on Place House premises. I can only assume the incessant noise will drive residents crazy affecting their wellbeing. No thoughts have been taken for the close proximity of the residents who live on all sides of the site. Least we forget the number of elderly residents, those with young kids, disabled or those who work from home, all will be forced to either put up and shut up or be driven out.

Once the school is built after a long, drawn out 2 years this will fundamentally impose substantial privacy issues, we will see a reduction of natural daylight, increased noise and light pollution (day/night), increased traffic which is not only an environmental concern but a health and safety issue as well. With the ever-increasing pedestrian footfall in the morning and afternoons, let's not forget the littering around the Northfields area has increased ten-fold! 

It would be useful to know what measures are in place to absolutely ensure that our voices and concerns are heard and acted on.

So please help us residence and make a difference.
