Changes to Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre

Ealing Broadway Shopping CentreMajor changes to the Uxbridge Road frontage of the Centre have recently been approved by  Ealing Council Planning Committee despite opposition from the Society. Crystal House lies between the main square of the shopping centre and the Uxbridge Road (opposite WH Smiths), with six shops below. The red brick frontage will be removed and replaced with glass walls. Two extra floors will be added, and the block will be extended on three sides. The Society objected because the site lies within the Ealing Town Centre Conservation Area, and the Broadway Centre is a locally listed building designed to fit in with the local Victorian and Edwardian architecture.  We feel that this development will spoil the consistency of the Centre and overshadow shoppers on the main road.
