Chiswick Business Park moves into new phase

Exhibition of plans for the third phase of development to be held including details of transport improvements

Chiswick Business Park is to hold two exhibitions on site to let the public see the proposals for the third phase of development and to highlight the key transport benefits the developers claim this final phase will bring to the Chiswick area.

Improved transport facilities are key to the development and the exhibition will illustrate the changes that are proposed. These include the upgrade of Gunnersbury Station with a new ticket hall, more gates, a wider stairway to the platforms and new larger shelters on the platforms.

A bridge link and footpath through Colonial drive to Chiswick Park Station is also proposed. Improvements to local bus services include an extension of the existing bus route to serve Acton Town Station terminating at the Park, with provision for further services in the future.

This phase will comprise a further two buildings offering around 570,000 sq ft of accommodation. Chiswick Business Park has been designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership and developed by Stanhope plc on behalf of the Chiswick Park Unit Trust. When complete, the development will be home to 10,000 office workers and will offer one of the largest business ‘campuses’ in Central London.

A planning application was submitted on 1st August and residents have until the 22nd August to respond. Terence Thorn the Chairman of the West Chiswick and Gunnersbury Society expressed concern at the lack of notification of the application saying, "I am very surprised and concerned that the Business Park have not bothered to inform the West Chiswick & Gunnersbury Society about their recent proposals for the Business Park. As the organisation that represents the area with over 120 members I would have thought they could have informed us."

The open days will take place in Building 3 on Chiswick Business Park between 12pm and 2pm and 5pm and 8pm on Thursday 7th August and 5pm and 8pm on Thursday 4th September.
