|Have your say on Turnham Green proposals|
Residents encouraged to participate in consultation
People who live close to, work or visit Turnham Green are being asked for their views on a range of proposals to improve and enhance the area.
The consultation follows hard on the heels of recent discussions by the Chiswick Area Committee on the various options.
The plans, which have been worked up into detailed proposals, cover environmental improvements to Turnham Green, Chiswick High Road (Dukes Road to Heathfield Terrace), and Barley Mow Passage, including a range of measures such as:
• New seating, trees, street lighting and litter bins;
Proposals for a new traffic scheme have also been incorporated, aimed at tackling congestion, reducing delays to buses and improving pedestrian safety. One proposal is to reverse the flow of traffic on Town Hall Avenue.
Councillor Paul Lynch, Chair of the Chiswick Area Committee, said: “Turnham Green is a vital focal point for Chiswick and site of historical importance. We have been discussing these plans for months. Now we need your ideas.
“Give us your views, please, on the whole package or just bits of it for Turnham Green and the surrounding area. Public feedback will be used extensively in finalising the plans. The work will cost a lot of public money, your money! Get good value by being involved in the plans and come and talk about them at the public meeting in autumn.”
A copy of the consultation document in available on-line (see above) and will be posted to residents and businesses in the area. Copies will also be available in Chiswick Library from the beginning of August.
The deadline for comments is Monday 5 September 2005.
