Those behind the Chiswick Curve think that the site at the Chiswick Roundabout - surrounded by major roads in a highly polluted locality - is the right place for 330 residential units in a 32-storey tower.

"Anyone who is 'ahead of the curve' knows that poor air quality and the harm caused by inappropriate tall buildings are of great concern to many Londoners. They are both issues that we want the new Mayor to tackle," said a spokesperson.

It is not yet known when this will be presented to the Hounslow Council Planning Committee.
