Residents of Chiswick’s Barrowgate Road were relieved to hear that a luxury car company's plans for a four storey garage have been rejected.

The plans submitted were for a metal clad structure that will extend the full length and breadth of their ground level car parking area and reach a height greater than 34 feet. The final building would have extended for 70 metres along the Great West Road.


The reasons given by the Council for the refusal of planning permission were: "The proposed building, by reason of its size, position and design would be unduly obtrusive in relation to neighbouring residential properties, and would result in overlooking and loss of light and sun to residential properties in Barrowgate Road. "

In addition the plans did not provide sufficient information on the amount of extra traffic the new facility would generate. Residents argued that with a CPZ about to be implemented in the area that measures should be taken to reduce the amount of commuter parking rather than encourage it.
