Ealing Council has approved a new charter for Southall that links in a range of community initiatives to the £11 million regeneration of the town centre.

The charter sets out aspirations for improving the town, and identifies an initial 19 community projects aimed at boosting youth employment, improving Southall’s appearance, and raising civic pride through a range of cultural events.

Ealing Council said it would provide grants to finance six small projects, while longer-term funding would be raised through a five-year ethical savings bond.

Council leader Julian Bell said measures in the charter would add to the physical regeneration work on streets, parking, and signage in Southall.

“It gets Southall’s unique blend of people, businesses and cultures working together to create a thriving, diverse town that’s a great place for residents and visitors alike,” he said.

The charter is due to be officially launched at the Southall campus of Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College on December 13.
