The planning enquiry into the proposals for a major development at the Chiswick West site near Gunnersbury Station begins next week.

The proposal is to demolish 391-409 and 592-596 Chiswick High Road and to create 272 flats in 3 blocks - a part 8, 10 and 12 storey block and a separate 4 storey block on the south side of the road, and a part 3 and part 6 storey block on the corner with Silver Crescent.

The developers behind the plans are described in the application as Clifton Cape though investigations have failed to reveal any company registered in that name. Although there is speculation as to the identity of the interests behind the project, there is no confirmation as to who is funding the project.

79 objections were received to the planning applications.
Hounslow Council resolved that it would have refused the applications if appeals had not been submitted.

The enquiry is scheduled to last 6 days, 10-5 each day, commencing Tuesday 14th September, continuing until 22nd September (with a rest day on Monday 20th).

It will be held at the Master Robert Hotel, Great West Road, Heston For further information, contact Marilyn Smith, Area Planning Manager, Chiswick Area 020 8583 4994

Anyone wishing to make representations to the enquiry must attend the opening day to register their interest.
