Ealing demolishes unauthorised care home

Words: Huw Morris

A large unauthorised building constructed at the rear of a proposed care home has been demolished by the London Borough of Ealing after enforcement action.

The building at 46-52 Beresford Road was taken down by council contractors after the owner failed to comply with an enforcement notice.  

Planning permission granted in March 2012 was for a large-scale care home on the site with a detached, single-storey building at the rear containing additional facilities and a wardens’ residential unit.

A site inspection by council officers during construction works found the detached building had not been built as specified in approved plans, causing significant harm to neighbouring residents and properties.
