The London Town Centre Health Check 2009 is part of an ongoing series of strategic London wide health checks undertaken by the GLA with support from the London boroughs. It provides a ‘snapshot’ of the health of over 200 of London’s town centres using a selection of strategic health check indicators and illustrates how these have changed over time. This ‘strategic’ town centre health check has informed preparation of the draft replacement London Plan and also contributes to the evidence base for local development plan policies, development proposals and implementation of town centre and local strategies in accordance with national planning policy statements PPS6 and draft PPS4.

The Ealing 2017 Retail Needs Update, forms part of the regular review of retail evidence base. It forms two parts, a retail and leisure study of the borough's principal retail centre at Ealing metropolitan town centre, published in April 2017, and a borough-wide review which will be published in Spring 2017.
