Friary Park Preservation Group


2017 FPPG Statement of Aims

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 Corner.


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.
