A cry of 'shame on you' greeted the vote which gave approval to Ballymore's controversial scheme for the south side of Brentford High Street at around 11.30pm last night.
Protestors at the planning meeting
The decision, which was not a surprise to opponents of the scheme, met with a mixed reaction in the hall with Andrew Dakers describing it as a 'sad day for Brentford' and a 'missed opportunity.
Matthew Rockel of Brentford Community Council said that he would have preferred to have seen the proposal turned down so that improvements could have been made to the initial design but he did not see the plan as being disastrous.
John Dale of Brentford TV was at the meeting and filmed the report below live.
