Labour Party To Close Its Headquarters In Chiswick
Plan to relocate constituency office outside W4 and turn building into flats
The Labour Party is closing its office at 367 Chiswick High Road and plans to relocate elsewhere in the constituency.
The party has applied for planning permission to convert the ground floor from office to four self-contained studio flats.
It's not known where the office might be based but it is thought it could go further towards Brentford or Hounslow. A decision will be made by the Executive- the building is owned by the Brentford & Isleworth Constituency.
A source said they had agreed to investigate a headquarters which would be a more central place in the constituency.
Membership has doubled in the party locally in the run-up to the last General Election and during the leadership contest and total membership in Chiswick is estimated at around 400 at present, according to a source.
The source said there was a pattern across the constituency of increased membership, which might be the result of the Jeremy Corbyn influence, but there were probably also other factors.
