The exciting way for you to build prosperous and vibrant local areas across the borough of Ealing!
We are currently working with local residents to select sites within the estate, and to obtain all relevant approvals to deliver the project. We have currently agreed 70% of these, but the rest will be announced at a later date. We aim to clear overgrown areas and replace with flower beds, fruit bushes and seating areas. There has always been an abundance of nesting birds within South Acton but with the changing housing stock and more dense new builds going up this has been decreasing, so we will install nesting boxes across the remaining communal spaces. We also want to create small space and gardening mentors from some of the expert residents to help people use their new balconies to maximum effect and to ensure it remains welcoming for wildlife. The leaves from the street trees across the estate are currently removed from the area but with a number of strategically located leaf stores across the estate. Leaf mould can be created and shared by local gardening folk.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
These areas within the grounds of the South Acton estate are caught within the old estate and the new development. We can use of the space available and create resource out of a problem with the creation leaf mould and also ensure that there is continuity and a legacy of wildlife with nesting boxes and fruit bushes. We will allow the members of the old Acton estate who have gardening knowledge and passion, the opportunity to share this by mentoring others who want to grow their gardens on the estate.
