Gurnell Leisure Centre development

In March 2021, Ealing Council turned down the plan to build blocks of flats on green open space at Gurnell – designated Metropolitan Open Land and part of the Brent River Park.

After opposing this encroachment on green space, the Brent River & Canal Society was invited to participate in a Sounding Board as part of the consultation on the site’s future development.

BRCS supports the refurbishment of Gurnell Leisure Centre or, if necessary, rebuilding within the existing building footprint and height. We issued a statement setting out our position on 9 June 2022.

Discussions with Ealing Council are ongoing.
