  • Stars and locals campaign against ‘dog’s dinner’ shopping centre plan in west London

    Film stars living in west London are campaigning against a £40?million shopping centre development saying it could ruin the area.

    Actresses Emilia Fox and Anna Chancellor are hoping to force developers to change proposals for a massive gated community which they say will adversely affect businesses and residents in the area.

    Councillors are examining plans for a regeneration project in Acton high street featuring nearly 150 new homes, new shops and a Waitrose supermarket.

    But locals say the design for The Oaks shopping centre is “a dog’s dinner” and could blight the area. They do not want the development to be closed off to pedestrians and they want the planned blocks of flats to be staggered so light is not blocked from existing shops.

    Planners want to turn the Oaks underground car park into a Waitrose, with a new multi-storey car park on top, surrounded by a gated community of 142 flats.Chancellor, 48, branded the idea “unimaginative” and “slightly barbaric”, saying a “huge great building” would not improve the aesthetic of nearby open spaces.

    She also said the development could bring traffic problems. “I think it is going to be dangerous,” she said. “I can’t quite see how that is going to work traffic-wise, how we are going to have all these endless delivery lorries.

    “Think bigger. Think that this whole area has really got an opportunity to become a very exciting area and something that Ealing council would be very proud of presiding over. Something really good happening in Acton.”

    Fox, 39, said: “Acton is a really tight-knit community that prides itself on its togetherness and a gated tower block in the heart of the town centre seems adverse to this spirit.”

    Bruce Forsyth’s daughter Laura, 50, who runs a card shop in the area, said: “The plans are not very sympathetic to the kind of community we have around here.

    “We have a lovely village and we are all for regeneration — we deserve it — but if you get it wrong it could be disastrous.” John Bourne, of the Acton Regeneration Company, said the plans would bring benefits including 500 jobs. But campaigners plan to protest on Saturday as Ealing’s planning committee visit the site ahead of the decision next week.

    Former Crimewatch editor Doug Carnegie, spearheading the campaign, said: “We want development in our backyard. The problem is this plan would be better suited to Eighties Bucharest than west London today.”

    Joanna David and Emilia Fox fronting the Jacques Vert Group’s ‘Mum & Me Coatwalk’ campaign

    Jacques Vert Group, the UK’s largest womenswear concessions retailer, is launching a major new cross brand, multi-channel marketing campaign – ‘Mum & Me Coatwalk’ – to support the brand’s extensive winter coat offering.
    Mum & Me Coatwalk focuses on the important things in life mums and daughters share, from big issues, to small moments, from pride in each other to shopping together.

    The national campaign is the first cross brand promotion that the Jacques Vert Group has done, with eight out of its nine retail brands participating (Windsmoor, Kaliko, Jacques Vert, Precis Petite, Planet, Minuet Petite, Eastex and dash).

    Coats are a key category for the business and the campaign will have significant prominence in its host stores including Debenhams and House of Fraser, with designated Mum & Me Coatwalk branded mats. Specially designed point of sale will feature on the Coatwalk mats as well as on the coats themselves.

    Celebrity actress mother and daughter duo, Emilia Fox and Joanna David are fronting the campaign.

    A consumer facing catwalk show is planned on Saturday 26th October, where Jacques Vert Group is partnering with YOU magazine to host the ‘Mum & Me Coatwalk’ event.

    It will take place in a specially created zone on London’s South Bank and feature four catwalk shows throughout the day. Brand ambassadors Emilia Fox and Joanna David, as well as a host other celebrities, models and YOU magazine readers will showcase the British designed coats on the catwalk.

    The event will support Think Pink, a charitable partnership initiative that supports three breast cancer charities: Pink Ribbon Foundation, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Campaign. Money will be raised by catwalk event pre-registration donations through YOU Magazine, as well as through a percentage of sales of a Debenhams exclusive coat.

    Mark Aldridge, Group Marketing Director at Jacques Vert Group, said: “Mum & Me Coatwalk is an extremely exciting campaign for us, as it’s the first cross-brand and multi-channel promotion we have done. Dedicated Coatwalk mats in our host stores will allow us to communicate the Group’s Elegant British Brands offering to consumers, providing an ideal opportunity to introduce them to brands they may not have considered before.

    “Coats are a key category for us and the design team based in Britain have worked hard to design a range that have been inspired by iconic styles as well as current trends to ensure we can confidently dress women, whatever their age.”

    Jacques Vert Group’s Mum & Me Coatwalk collection features 156 styles of coat from Windsmoor, Kaliko, Jacques Vert, Precis Petite, Planet, Minuet Petite, Eastex and dash and will be available in Debenhams, JLP, House of Fraser, Independent Department Stores (AIS), as well some standalone brand stores in the UK from 1st October 2013.

    The range will include two exclusive Windsmoor coats, one available exclusively in Debenhams with a percentage of sales going to the Think Pink charity and the second will be available in JLP stores.
