Controversial plans to build a 22-storey tower block behind the Hoover Building in Perivale have been rejected by Ealing Council.
Ealing’s Planning Committee met last night as protesters gathered outside the Town Hall to object to the 305-unit development.
A council spokeswoman said the planning application was refused on the grounds of the impact of its height on the Hoover building.
A spokesman for the campaign against The Wiltern development said the group were “over the moon”.
He said: “We are absolutely delighted, thrilled, ecstatic and relieved with the result.
“Our message to Tesco is that they must now rethink their plans for the Tesco petrol station site in effective and meaningful consultation and co-production with Perivale residents.
Developer Amro said in a statement: “Given the comprehensive consultation process to committee with the London Borough of Ealing, the GLA, Historic England, local bodies and groups and receiving the recommendation to approve the scheme; we are obviously disappointed with the decision and we do of course appreciate the points raised by the committee.
An Amro spokesman said the company appreciated the fact that the committee noted that the site was appropriate development. He said: “We will be considering the options available to us.”
