Ealing Allotment locations map
A representation of allotments located in Ealing Borough with basic information and contacts for locations has been created as an experiment. Map link
This does work on web connected phone/tables tested, though view area does present problem on small screens.
The map provides ability to search for sites, select a map marker for popup more information. The data presented may be out of date.
Our intention is to provide allotment site locator, contacts and indicator of vacancies, and work out a way of gathering up to data and maintenance.
Any comments, ideas and updates will be welcome.
The Ealing Dean Allotment Society (EDAS) who manage the Northfields allotment site has launched a petition against the proposal by their landlord, Pathways, to build housing on part of their site. This is not the first threat of housing development on allotment land in Ealing and it is unlikely to be the last. Next time it may be your site! As such, it is in all our interests to rally around in support. So please sign up to their petition on http://www.ealingdean.co.uk/

Northfield’s Allotment Under Threat
The Northfield’s allotment site, managed by the Ealing Dean Allotment Society (EDAS), is both the oldest allotment site in London - established by the Bishop of London in 1832 – and one of the most successful allotment sites in Ealing - all plots full with a waiting list of 72 and close to 500 local residents showing their interest and support of the site at its latest open day earlier this summer.
Their landlords Pathways, the housing charity that currently holds the land in trust, has recently announced proposals for taking over about 10% of the site for a mix of social and private housing, including a five or six storey building. These proposals have already met with a great deal of local opposition. Local councillors from Walpole ward, the electoral ward that includes the allotment site, have set up a petition against the development and Rupa Huq, local MP for Ealing Central and Acton, has also pledged her support. EAP is strongly against the proposal on the grounds that this could be the thin end of the wedge for further development of the site, the fact that the development includes private housing needed to subsidise the project, and that it sets a precedent for further encroachment on Ealing allotment sites that play a major part both in the community aspects and the character of Ealing as one of the greenest areas of London.
