Piazza Appeal Hits Target


Therm for websiteWe didi it! Thanks to the vision and generosity of both Grove Park residents and Hounslow Council the Piazza Appeal reached 100% of its pledge target. Despite being unsuccessful in our pitch to receive an additional Mayoral pledge back in July we have done it all the same. Once all the pledges are collected by SpaceHive Hounslow will put the design out for tender. Many who visited our marquee events will have seen the 4 concept designs prepared by Hounslow and have given us your preferences, comments and suggestions for improvements.

It is critical that, having shared the cost of the design, Grove Park people have a say in what gets built. Our intention is to form a GPG sub committee comprising locals with expertise in architecture, urban design and transport to help pass the design preferences of GP residents, shop owners and businesses to the selected design company.

It is hard to give precise timescales at this point but the design could be completed within the next 6-9 months. Following that, work can begin on securing funding for the Piazza construction. We will keep everyone informed of progress via the website and directly to GPG members in our quarterly Newsletter and mailings.
