Ealing Council is hosting two public meetings next Wednesday (10 July) on the work taking place at the Southall Waterside development. It is encouraging residents with queries or concerns to go along.

The first will be a public drop-in session between 3- 6pm with representatives from the council, Public Health England and the Environment Agency, who will be on-hand to answer questions.

A panel-style public meeting will then take place between 6.30- 8pm with councillors and council officers; as well as representatives from Public Health England, the Environment Agency and also the developers Berkeley Group. They will all take questions from residents.

Both meetings will take place at the Dominion Centre, in The Green, Southall (UB2 4QB).

A document with answers to frequently asked questions regarding the work at Southall Waterside has also been prepared and is available to view online.
