Residents of Maypole Dock petition Ealing Council to drop the aspiration for a public thoroughfare over, along or across Maypole Dock
Petition has closed and a response from the council has been published.

Drop the aspiration for a public thoroughfare over, along or across Maypole Dock and retain the private and secure nature of the established, yet vulnerable houseboat community living there.

Having seen the Ealing Council adopted 'Southall Opportunity Area Framework' document (http://tinyurl.com/prlxt9q), Maypole Dock residents are now aware of the aspiration by the council to open the dock up to public access and build a pedestrian footbridge linking Havelock and Toplocks areas across Maypole Dock.

Maypole Dock Residents Association (MDRA) and their supporters strongly object to the recent Toplocks Depot development footbridge and public access towpath proposals by Catalyst Housing citing serious concerns about the safety, security, quality of life, community and environmental implications of such proposals.

Maypole Dock residents and supporters will object to all planning proposals put forward by any developer which aim to achieve public access through the currently secluded and private community of Maypole Dock. This petition should also be used as a evidence of a strong voice of objection in any local or regional planning decision making process on the matter. 

Detailed objections and explanations can be seen in More Details section of this petition.

This petition has been reviewed and the following response has been offered:
The concerns raised by local residents in relation to the Council’s aspiration for a footbridge over Maypole Dock are noted. The proposed footbridge forms part of the wider movement strategy within the adopted Southall Opportunity Area Planning Framework (OAPF), which was subject to extensive public and stakeholder consultation including the houseboat community at Maypole Dock, before being formally adopted by the London Borough of Ealing and Greater London Authority in July 2015. The Council considered that a footbridge / cycle link over Maypole Dock would improve connectivity between the established residential settlements to the west of Maypole Dock and the under-utilised Glade Lane Canalside Park to the east of Maypole Dock. The petition highlights resident’s concerns that a footbridge would increase crime and anti-social behaviour and thereby negatively impact the quality of life of the existing residents using the moorings in Maypole Dock. The petition also raises concerns about the management and maintenance of a footbridge, the impact of external lighting on bats, and the potential for a footbridge to reduce the number of residential moorings accommodated within Maypole Dock. Whilst there has been community consultation by Catalyst Housing Association regarding their proposals for a footbridge, it is noted that the Council has not received a formal planning application. The concerns raised in the petition are material planning considerations that would be considered in consultation with the Metropolitan Police Crime Prevention Design Advisor, Ealing’s Parks Service and other internal and external consultees should a planning application for the footbridge be submitted. In addition, local residents would be given an opportunity to provide further comments in relation to detailed proposals for a footbridge over Maypole Dock should an application be made.
