Pool Opening - Access to the swimming pool - Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Improvements to the pool and pool area are progressing well with the intention of reopening the pool at the end of May for the 2nd Bank Holiday.


To improve poolside security and safety, a new timed lock has been installed on the pool gate this season. It will restrict access to between the hours of 06:00 - 22:00.


The timed lock has a number pad feature similar to the lock on the back gate. However, each resident will have its code made up of the flat number and a unique 4-digit PIN of your choice.


To gain entry to the pool area you will need your existing pool key and new number code.



To obtain your new number code, you will need to complete a Pool Access Form.


You will not have access to the pool unless you have completed the Pool Access Form, which confirms that you have read and accept the Ealing Village Swimming Pool Operating Policy.

Copies of the Pack will also available at the coffee morning in the Clubhouse on the 22nd May at 11:00am. Additionally copies will be available via the website.


In order to allow the lock to be programmed in time for the pool opening, completed forms should returned to flat 127 by 25th May. Although, codes will be given out after this date, you will not have access to the pool until you have returned the completed form and the computerised access system has been updated which is not an instant process.


*In order to better understand pool usage we have included an optional short survey for residents to complete. Please return completed surveys along with your Pool Access Form to flat 127.

New Front Gates - Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Further to previous communication and in response to concerns raised by residents and EVRA about security in Ealing Village, EVL has approved a three-point plan which will gradually restrict access to the site to residents or those who have legitimate business in Ealing Village only. 


The first stage, completed last September, saw new gates and keypad lock fitted to the back entrance at Madeley Road.


The second stage is the fitting of new pedestrian front gates with similar style keypad lock.


The third stage is the installation of new automated vehicular front gates, which will control traffic entering the site.  


In the next few weeks the keypad locks will become functional and automatically lock from 7pm to 7am. Between these hours you will need to put in the four number code to open the pedestrian gates. The code for the new front gates will be the same as that for the back gate to Madeley Road.


The vehicular gates are expected to become operational in April, to coincide with the road resurfacing. The actual timing for this will be determined by TfL.


TfL have asked that we only close the vehicular gates from 7pm to 7am, which will therefore match the locking of the pedestrian gates. The back gate to Madeley Road will continue to be locked all the time.


 More news on the new pedestrian and vehicular gates will follow. 


Open Meeting March 1 - Meet the Managing Agent from Manor Court - Thursday, February 17, 2011

Manor Court is similar in design and age to Ealing Village i.e. 1930s Dutch style, as they were both designed by the same architect, R. Toms and Partners and both built by the Bell Property Trust.


Andrew McKeer, ex ARMA chairman, with his 2009 ARMA award


In 1999, Manor Court faced a proposal to fund costs of £5 million of work. Manor Court residents felt that these were unaffordable and changed their managing agent to Frank Bailey and Partners, who offered an affordable alternative to maintaining Manor Court . Andrew McKeer, from Frank Bailey and Partners, will be talking to us about the original proposal and the approach they took instead to meet the residents needs.


The meeting will take place on Tuesday 1st March 2011 7.00pm at the Ealing Village Clubhouse and is open to all residents and leaseholders.


This is another great opportunity to learn more about how a project like this has been achieved.
