Welcome to Friends of Haven Green in Ealing

Haven Green is cherished in Ealing as the Jewel in the Crown of the Queen of the Suburbs.


The Friends of Haven Green (FoHG) is an independent community group which speaks up for the Green to protect it for the perpetual enjoyment of Ealing residents and visitors alike.


FoHG is affiliated to, and supports the work of Save Ealing's Centre

The compound has gone!!

So what have we now got?

  • The area has been re-turfed
  • The unintentional lake in the middle of the turf seems to have disappeared after further work
  • We still have the Electricity sub-station - SSE will remove it at their convenience; Apparently it supplies power to the Taxi Rank and Cycle Hub (against the findings of a previous Planning Inspector)
  • We still have the cycle racks set in concrete on common land near the railway line; these were supposed to have been removed when the station upgrade was completed
  • The old 65 bus lay-by has been given back to common land - we are now waiting for it to be turfed

The old bus layby, now restored to Common land as the result of a court case brought by Friends of Haven Green.


At the far end of the old layby you can see the Electricity sub-station which has not yet been removed.

New threat looms over Haven Green

A massive office block is proposed for 9-42 The Broadway which would overshadow Haven Green. More to follow.
