The Friary Park Preservation
Group was formed by local residents in November 2014 to oppose the plans of
Catalyst Housing to demolish 230 family homes in Acton near the Acton Mainline Crossrail
station at junction on the A40 known as Gipsy
Roderick Nicholas Cahill, CEO of Catalyst
Housing, without consulting his tenants or local residents announced the
demolition in November 2014, threatening to destroy a coherent community, cause serious
financial problems to elderly and disabled Friary Park residents and
cause greatly increased demand on health and education services in Acton by increasing the current
population on the site from 340 to over 2,000 by building 680 flats for private sale.
We want a public enquiry into Roderick Nicholas Cahill’s running
of Catalyst Housing and his other 20 companies operating in the London Borough
of Ealing by the District Auditor, the Department of Work and Pensions and the
Homes and Communities Agency.
