A RESIDENTS group remains sceptical over revised housing plans for the Green Man Lane estate in West Ealing.
West Ealing Neighbours (WEN) saythe project, if approved, would involve knocking down 464 existing homes and building about 700 in their place, and offers little in the way of improvements.
A consultation on the regeneration scheme, which is being over-seen by A2Dominion and Rydon, finishes today (Friday).
Eric Leach, secretary for WEN said: "There aren't that many changes, to be honest. As a result, we are still not happy with it. Our biggest contention is that this is public land which is being sold off. Other than the new homes there is very little being done with the project.
"There will be no extensions built for St John's Primary School and in the current plans, there will be two green areas which will be fenced off and which they don't intend to let the public use."
A spokesman for Ealing Council said: "We are transferring this land to housing association A2Dominion and its developer partner to allow the much-needed regeneration programme to begin.
"Green Man Lane residents have been fully involved throughout the process. They chose the developer for the scheme and it has their full support. This scheme will vastly improve the living conditions of many hundreds of people and be of benefit to West Ealing as a whole."
The new homes would be available for affordable rent, shared ownership and outright sale.
The proposal also offers new facilities including a gym and cafe, along with car and cycle parking.
The revised planning application has been submitted to Ealing Council and is expected to go before the planning committee in the coming months.
