Ealing Council's Greenprint for Recovery and Renewal

We are pleased to launch Ealing Council’s ‘Greenprint for Economic Recovery and Renewal’. Please click here to view Greenprint.

Led by the economic growth service, officers from across the council have collaborated on drafting this Greenprint to help inform how we focus efforts and prioritise resources to mitigate the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on Ealing’s local economy and the neighbourhoods and residents that it supports.

The Greenprint is a concise and easily accessible document. It includes a short summary of the council’s collective emergency response and showcases some of the council’s ongoing economic recovery work. It purposefully focuses on goals and objectives for the shorter term, over next 18 months, which is realistic given the trajectory of the pandemic and in balancing the council’s current priorities and resource constraints.

This version of the Greenprint is a ‘working draft’, which allows the council to engage with its partners, existing and hopefully many new, to stress test the objectives and explore how they align with the objectives of partner recovery strategies. This collaborative approach should enable the council and its multiple partners to share expertise and resources in co-delivering objectives. 

In particular, the Greenprint is intended to complement and supplement recently published recovery documents, including the West London Alliance’s Build and Recovery strategy, Heathrow’s Local Recovery Plan and the soon to be published Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation’s (OPDC) Recovery Mission. Following partner engagement, a final version of the Greenprint will be published by Spring 2021.

Ultimately the Greenprint lays the foundations on what a future economic growth strategy might look and feel like for Ealing, a strategy that will be co-developed with stakeholders from across the borough and investors who have passion for improving the health and wellbeing and prosperity of Ealing’s residents. If we get this approach right, we will have greater success in addressing disadvantage by creating a more sustainable, more inclusive and socially just economy and society that will be much better prepared and more resilient to future economic shocks, similar in magnitude to COVID-19.
