2015 saw the fantastic news that Ealing will finally be getting its cinema back after the Council successfully served a compulsory purchase order on the previous owners Empire. Other good news included the new incline lift at Greenford Station and the new Southall Broadway Boulevard with improved traffic flows and wider pavements. We will make further progress on the Cinema and other projects in 2016 but the new year will also bring some tough decisions as we try to close the £37m black hole in our budgets caused by the Tory cuts of 56% to local government. But with Crossrail bringing new investment, jobs and homes to Ealing I’m sure we will find a way forward. A very happy Christmas and prosperous New Year to all local residents.
