Comment on this story on the

The company which purchased the Chiswick Police Station site has announced that it intends to convert it into retirement homes.

Birchgrove is a specialist developer of retirement properties for rent and already has three sites in operation in the South East with three others in development.

The site at 205-207 Chiswick High Road would become its seventh property. The freehold was put up for sale by the Metropolitan Police in September of last year as part of an asset disposal programme. No price has been disclosed for the 0.42 acre site for the building which extends to approximately 23,953 sq ft. Currently decorated with flowers and butterflies as part of a public art project it will be demolished with the new building expected to be four storeys high.

According to reports in the specialist property press, the planned development would include 48 apartments and amenity space for residents ‘and the wider community’.

There had earlier been suggestions that the frontage of the building on Chiswick High Road could be turned into a community centre. We have contacted Birchgrove to ask for more details of the plan

Honor Barratt, Birchgrove chief executive told Laing Buisson News, ‘Chiswick and Leatherhead together take the Birchgrove portfolio to seven neighbourhoods, each unique and glorious in their own way but all sharing the same commitment to helping people live a long and happy life.’

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 info@neighbournet.com 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.
