The Grove

The GroveThe Council is consulting the public about their proposal for an article 4 direction over The Grove. This would mean that changes to buildings and walls, especially the frontages, which are now permitted development would require planning permission. The road and its buildings are already altered but ECS think it has retained enough of its original attractive character to make this increased level of protection a valuable contribution to Ealing’s conservation. We fully support this proposal, and ask the Council to consider further designations which have been recorded in management plans, particularly where there are Locally Listed buildings/Local Gems which do not have statutory protection.
