John Lewis Partnership (JLP) is facing opposition from local residents over its plans to build rental homes in a borough of London.

JLP, which plans to develop and rent out 10,000 homes over the next 10 years, has been accused of ignoring local community sentiment and sustainability concerns. 

Stop The Towers (STT), a campaign group that supports residents in West Ealing, has made a complaint to a council leader about the retailer’s plans to build hundreds of rental homes in the area.
