Plans for Chiswick West Development Rejected
Development Committee of Hounslow Council reject "Son of Tower"
to build a major commercial complex around Gunnersbury station saw
their plans rejected at a recent Council meeting.
After it became
clear the original plans would not pass a revised proposal was presented
which abandoned the idea of a hotel, increased the amount of affordable
housing and decreased the size of the main tower from 30 storeys
were three separate parts to the plan including the tower complex,
a nine storey office building on the opposite side of the road and
a pedestrian walkway. All three were rejected.
It is not known
at this state if further plans will be submitted but the West Chiswick
and Gunnersbury Society are planning a march against over-development
in the area next April.
One local resident
commented that this was not the end of the issue, "We saw how
in the case of the Pinnacle a series of applications gradually wore
down resistance to the scheme as people felt that objections to
one plan automatically would be considered on subsequent plans.
In fact this may not be the case, so it is necessary to formally
object to every application."
