"The Local Strategic Partnership’s (LSP) east Acton project is testament to the more hands-on approach the council and its partners are taking to improve the borough, says Ealing’s council leader.
Councillor Julian Bell said three years ago they claimed they wanted to do less talking and more doing, and work undertaken this year to improve lives for people in the chosen area has proved that.
At Thursday’s (November 13) scrutiny meeting Mr Bell said:
"We will have discussions over the next couple of months on how we can be more strategic."... At the meeting, east Acton councillor Kate Crawford asked whether the council would be utilising opportunities surrounding HS2, to which the council leader said they would be looking to maximise opportunities for any future training and apprenticeships around Old Oak Common and HS2."
“Everybody knows there's not any more money but if you pull your money and resources together, we can work in a better way."
