Ealing Town Hall Car Park Closes
Last day August 20th for public and council staff
The next phase of the Dickens Yard development is scheduled to start on Saturday 21 August at which point the car park behind Ealing Town Hall will close to the public and to council staff.
The last day the car park will open is Friday 20 August. Pedestrian access between Dickens Yard and Springbridge Road will also cease.
The council is providing alternative spaces during construction by opening the car park behind its main building, Perceval House, on Longfield Avenue.
The Perceval House car park will be open to the public on a pay and display basis at weekends. The charge will remain at £2 for all-day parking. Free parking will also be available after 5pm on weekdays. The spaces are reserved for council staff only before 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Other alternative car parks close by include the Springbridge multi-storey on Springbridge Road and the Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre car park.
Councillor Julian Bell, Leader of Ealing Council, said: “Progress on the Dickens Yard development is fantastic news for Ealing. When finished, it will provide a new heart to our town centre and a great place to live and shop.
“The closure of the Town Hall car park is an essential part of the work and I’m pleased that we’ve been able to accommodate the public by opening the car park behind Perceval House during construction.”
Once complete, the Dickens Yard development will contain new homes, shops, a new ‘town square’ next to Christ Church, as well as 282 public car parking spaces.
