32-STOREY CHISWICK CURVE ON HOLD - FOR THE MOMENT

32-STOREY CHISWICK CURVE ON HOLD - FOR THE MOMENT

The developers of the proposed 32-storey building at Chiswick Roundabout known as 'The Chiswick Curve' have not yet followed through on their submission to build multiple flats with minimal parking, no added infrastructure, and no green areas, right beside one of the most polluted parts of West London (which is to say, in Britain).

We understand that plans for the building, twice the height of the new Brentford football stadium, have been parked for the moment, although the latest edition of Great West magazine, dedicated to Hounslow's development plans, says 'A planning application is expected soon'. Watch this space.

For more details, including the pitifully short amount of time allocated to the public to peruse the plans, go to http://www.chiswickroundaboutplans.co.uk

Citizen engagement but no marital harmony - yet

Citizen engagement but no marital harmony - yet

The GPG attends the monthly meeting of the Residents Association Forum (RAF) chaired by Councilor Theo Dennison. The RAF is the opportunity for the 15 plus resident associations in Hounslow to question council policy and put forward their ideas on how Hounslow could do things better. After an initial period of wariness the council are realising that the group is not a critical bunch of NIMBYS but a generally supportive group who have access to the concerns and aspirations of Hounslow's residents. A smart move given the result of the EU referendum which exemplified the consequences of those with power failing to listen to their electorate.

At the April RAF we received a long overdue presentation from Hounslow Highways. They have the Public Finance Initiative contract to repair and maintain the borough's roads not within Transport for London's aegis. HH have a 25 year contract worth £350m. For the first five years, of which they are in the third year, they are pruning trees, resurfacing and repairing 259 miles of road, 450 miles of pavement and replacing street lights. Much of this work was 5 years or more overdue so they have been playing catch up. Once the 5 year period of refurbishment is over they will move to 20 years of maintenance.

All Change for Capital Interchange Way

All Change for Capital Interchange Way

More plans for the area surrounding the new Brentford football stadium have been revealed: award-winning architect Will Alsop has unveiled his 3-building plan for Capital Interchange Way, which has been avaible for public scrutiny in very short time slots at Brentford Steam Museum.

 Key to the design for the site, which is placed right beside the congested and polluted M4, is the incorporation of a bus garage. The design will probably not do anything to mitigate the effects of extreme pollution and gridlock which plague the A4/M4 corridor, but is at least bold and interesting.

Grove Park CPZ Gets Ever Closer

Grove Park CPZ Gets Ever Closer

After the Jan 28th Area Forum, where the local Chiswick Councillors considered requests for a CPZ (Controlled Parking Zone) from those roads suffering displacement from the Park/ Staveley CPZ, the Councillors did two things: they ratified the Park / Staveley CPZ and vowed to consult all residents in the Grove Park / Strand on The Green area about the proposed CPZ extension into roads west of Park Road, including Chatsworth Rd., Milnthorpe Rd., Chesterfield Road and Elmwood Rd. The latter didn’t happen; Hounslow’s Traffic Dept instead sent out a Consultation document (approved by Councillors) asking most roads whether they too wanted a CPZ. Roads deemed to be ‘private’, including those serving Sutton Court mansions and Thames Village, were not consulted. Click on 'View More' for more.
