Kew Bridge development - time running out for comments

Only days left to have your say on major proposed development

A public enquiry will decide if the site next to Kew Bridge - often known as the Scottish Widows Site - will be home to a major development by builders St George.

The developers proposed a series of buildings rising to 11 stories in height, containing 263 flats and 26,000 feet of commercial space. The plan was controversial for many reasons and community meetings were widely opposed to the proposals.

The decision on whether to go ahead with the development has been taken out of Hounslow Council's hands because of the length of time that has elapsed since the plans were first presented. However the Inspector is inviting comments from any interested parties until the 15th September.

These should be sent direct to Planning Inspectorate, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol BS1 6PN quoting reference number APP/F5540/A/03/1120786 & APP/F5540/E/03/1121007. Any letters received on the original application will be carried forward.
