Plans to pedestrianise Barley Mow Passage will be considered by the Chiswick Area Planning Committee on Tuesday 17th May.

The request has been made by brasserie owner Sam Harrison to enable him to use what the Council deems as a 'highway' for business use so that tables and chairs can be put out and food and alcohol to be served outside the premises in the evenings on weekdays and weekends.

The proposed pedestrianisation would come into effect after 6.30pm, which is when the existing parking restrictions end, until midnight from Monday to Saturday and all day Sunday.

A folding barrier would be put in place during these times and removed by the brasserie's staff to prevent vehicles from entering Barley Mow Passage.

If Members agree to support the proposal, an initial consultation will be carried out amongst local businesses and residents. If objections are received, these will be reported back to this committee for consideration and to decide on the future course of action which could include a wider consultation on the issue.

Should the plans be approved, the go ahead would still be subject to a successful application for a Street Trading Licence.

Full details of the plans can be found here.
