Sutton Court Road House to Be Demolished
Supported housing development proposed on derelict property
A leaflet has been sent out to local residents regarding the proposed demolition of the unoccupied house at 23 Sutton Court Road, Chiswick and the construction of a 'purpose built, supported housing development.'
The proposal suggests that there will be 15 single occupancy flats with a staff office, all with parking on site.
The new development will be just across the road from the newly redeveloped St. Margaret's Hostel which is close to completion, and which was given planning permission despite a plethora of local concerns being voiced to the Council.
On the ChiswickW4.com Forum, there is outrage from some local residents who feel that this is a property in need of redevelopment rather than demolition and who are worried that the proposals will be completely out of touch with the style of the area.
David Darlow commented that, "This is one of the poorest pieces of architecture I've seen in a long time - a bland, 1970s style office block in a prominent place in the heart of an Edwardian estate. There is no attempt to fit in with the area. It is a vulgar and quite awful proposal."
One Housing Group, the group who have proposed this change, will be at Chiswick Town Hall on January 14th from 3pm to 8pm to discuss their views on the development, prior to the submitting of their application to Hounslow Council. Anyone with a view on the matter is invited to come along and discuss it.
