Parliament petitioned on Acton allotments
Crossrail accused on not keeping residents informed
Gary Malcolm, Lib Dem Environment spokesperson and Acton resident has handed in a petition to Parliament in an attempt to protect the allotments in Acton that will be compulsory purchased if the Crossrail project goes ahead.
Cllr Gary Malcolm said: “Even though Crossrail is a good thing it is not satisfactory to get rid of the allotments in Acton. I am campaigning to stop Crossrail bosses from getting hold of this land, as allotments are an important part of our community. There is other land they can use.”
On 21 June 2005 Cllr Malcolm presented the Ealing Mayor with a petition from local residents and Great Western allotment holders opposing the compulsory purchase of local sporting fields and the Great Western Allotments. All the allotment sites in Acton are full currently and have waiting lists. Gary is on the waiting list for the allotment at the end of his road, the Great Western Allotments.
