Chiswick House and Gardens Trust is currently making improvements to the Staveley Road entrance by the cricket pitch.

The architecturally-designed scheme which is designed to improve the visitor's arrival area to the Gardens, will also include a new catering outlet which the Trust believes will be popular with dog walkers.

A number of benches had been stolen from the cricket pitch last year and these will be replaced with new ones shortly according to a spokesperson.

The scheme included treeworks and a number of locals have asked why trees are being cut down.

CHGT has said in its response : "Chiswick House and Gardens Trust is undertaking an improvement project at the the Staveley Road entrance. It is an architecturally designed scheme and will, once it is finished, improve the visitor’s arrival to the Gardens from the Staveley Road entrance. 

The scheme will include a catering outlet which The Trust believes will be very popular with dogwalkers. As part of the works and in conjunction with the London Borough of Hounslow’s tree management policy, some trees do need to be taken down. All the appropriate orders and consents from the Council are in place.  This work was being carried out last week."
