The large site on Turnham Green Terrace formerly occupied by Maison Blanc and Patisserie Valerie is set to become an up-market delicatessen.

An application has been submitted by Delilaurent39 Limited in respect of 26-28 Turnham Green Terrace for changes at this address.

This company operates branches of Laurents Deli in St. John’s Wood and Paddington which describe themselves as local high-end artisan delicatessens providing quality produce from France and Italy.

On the company’s Facebook page founder Xavier Laurent says, “French food has always been a passion since my teenage years, that were spent in the South West of France near Bordeaux.

“I came to appreciate fresh local produce, developed cooking skills using the best of ingredients from the area and developed an interest in wine during my studies at the Wine School of Monbazillac.

“With my Sicilian wife, I explored various foods from Sicily and Italy and it seemed only natural to one day open a business where I could share my love and experience of French and Italian food with others.

“I want you to love this place. I put my heart and soul into the deli and I think it shows”

The designs submitted for the deli with the application suggest that food will not be consumed on the premises but the outdoor tables will be retained.

We contacted Laurent Deli for more details about its planned opening but have yet to receive a response.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
