Further planning applications

In addition to the proposals to redevelop the B&Q site, two further planning applications have been drawn to SoGA’s attention by the respective developers:  

The first by L & Q is for the Citroen Garage by Chiswick Roundabout and is for “affordable homes and a new public square”.  A presentation to the public is scheduled for Saturday 8 July at Waterman’s between 10:30 and 16:00.  Any comments should go directly to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
The second is a preliminary notification from Balfour Beatty to redevelop the disused and dilapidated building at 250 Gunnersbury Avenue/Power Road and is for “a vibrant mixed use scheme to provide contemporary employment space complimented with student residences on upper levels of the building. There are no details available from Balfour Beatty at the moment other than those above although consultation and engagement presentations to the public are planned. Preliminary comments can be addressed to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
In all instances SoGA has asked to be kept informed as plans evolve.

What's in a name?

As you may have read in the latest edition of Signals, over the years, we have lost some alleys that historically connected Back Lane (know now as Thames Road) to the Strand towpath. Today we have Post Office Alley and Ship Alley but have you ever wondered about the name of other two remaining alleys – the one at the side of the Bell & Crown and the other at the side of the Hopkin Morris Homes of Rest?

Chiswick Curve - the fight continues

The developer of the Chiswick Curve is appealing against the London Borough of Hounslow's refusal of the building and the media screens. All those who commented on the applications should be receiving an official notification of the appeal from the Council. In view of the numbers involved this may take some time. Meanwhile the "start" letter from the Planning Inspectorate has been published on the Council's website under the applications 00505/EY/P18 and AD22; a copy is attached. The deadline for comments to be submitted to the Inspectorate is 19 September.

Proposal for new pedestrian signage

LBH intends to introduce better pedestrian “way-finding” signage in Chiswick in 2017/18, using the Legible London signs. This signage has been developed by TfL as an intuitive, consistent, and easy-to-use system that includes maps and directional information to help people navigate by foot. The scheme is intended to be consistent across London so that the public know what to look for if they are in an unfamiliar area.

Please see attachment for further details.

Kew Bridge - pedestrian throughway update

St George's planning application for a 'cosmetic' make-over of the steps under Kew Bridge was granted last Thursday by a vote of 9:2 with one abstention.  This is a great shame as LBH's decision flys in the face of the Discrimination & Disability Act 2010 as no provision is made in the St George application for wheelchair access.
SoGA put forward the proposal to open either Arch #3 or #4 as a throughway but regrettably this was dismissed by the Councillors.
