Acton has a historic town centre, with residential areas in the south. It is home to a regular market and various leisure activities.

North Acton is undergoing significant change as a fast-developing area of Ealing. It is identified as one of the key local town centres for new development and is set to deliver up to 35,000sqm of town centre use for the local area.

The Elizabeth Line and proximity to future High Speed 2 station at Old Oak Common will make this one of the most accessible locations in the UK and is expected to attract new and growing business sectors, potentially becoming a hub of the London West Innovation District that is being pursued by the West London Alliance.
