Ealing Common pavements are finally getting cleaned

Following plenty of emails, Facebook messages, Twitter posts and text messages over the past few months to Cllr Joanna Dabrowska, ward’s pavements have finally been swept. With a wet winter (although suddenly we are now having the hottest winter days ever!) making pavements slippery and dangerous, not mentioning ‘yucky’ to walk through, the Council has finally got round to cleaning up the ward which was due to be all done by the end of 2018.

In some cases, residents have been very angry at the Council and had swept the roads and footpaths themselves in order to prevent injury to pedestrians and cyclists.

Additionally, some roads have had their street gullies cleansed where requested where the autumn detritus have blocked drains causing over-flooding.

Here are some roads that have been cleansed.

Grange Park and Grange Road







Gunnersbury Avenue (the remainder will be cleansed by Monday 4th March)






Blandord Road





27th February 2019 LATEST UPDATE:  Most of the Rothschild Residential Area (between Gunnersbury Lane and Leopold Road) has been most done as of today.
Cllr Dabrowska is chasing to get the roads north of Uxbridge Road deep cleansed as they have not been done since last year.

If there are roads and pavements still not cleansed in recent months (or indeed years!), please do report it.
Cllr Dabrowska is aware that St Paul’s Close has not been swept for months and missed its recent scheduled quarterly cleanse. The public highway has been done, but the housing land element has yet to be completed.
