Bollo Lane Site Stirs Up Residents' Concerns
Including lack of parking provision in plans for six-storey building
Plans submitted by Community Housing Association for a mixed use redevelopment of a site at 2 Bollo Lane have got residents up in arms.
The Association are looking to build a six-storey building comprising 1050sqm of office space on part-ground and part-first floors and 56 residential units - 50% of which will be affordable housing - with alterations to existing vehicular access off Bollo Lane; roof gardens and amenity space; eight disabled parking spaces, one car club space and an integral cycle storage.
Residents are mainly concerned about the lack of provision for parking at the new site. By their calculations 56 flats and three business premises would mean an estimated 200 residents and employees. The only parking provision made is eight disabled parking spaces and a single car club space.
The site has been the subject of various planning proposals, largely by developers, since the 1990s and has passed from company to company. No proposal has ever been wholly approved by the Council.
A resident told ChiswickW4.com, “The present proposals are in many ways even less acceptable from an environmental point of view, largely because of the completely unrealistic lack of proper parking provision, than anything the most hard-headed developer has put forth.”
A site visit by Ealing Council’s planning officers will take place on Saturday, 13th February at 10.45 a.m. There will be a public meeting at Ealing Old Town Hall at 7 pm on Wednesday, 17 February.
