ERA Launch Application Petition

Following public feedback, the Eastcote Residents' Association has launched a petition against retrospective planning consent being granted at Eastcote Food Centre.

The ERA is petitioning the council to refuse this application at Eastcote Food Centre, 197 Field End Road (Planning Application 22149/APP/2017/2101) to install an orange perforated roller shutter structure to the side of the building. The work has already been completed, and changes the side use of the building to warehousing and storage. The planning application is therefore a retrospective application.
