Barratt's buy former Beecham HQ

Consultation opportunity on huge A4 site

Barratt Homes are to hold a public consultation into the future of the Wallis House site along the A4.

The property firm have acquired the site, which belonged to Smith Kline Beecham prior to the opening of the new GSK building in 2002. The principle use of the site at the moment is as an overflow car park.

"The Wallis House project is in its very early stages of consultation. At the moment we have some aspirations for the site - our consultation on the 5th and 6th December will be an opportunity for local people to give us input and ideas about how our plans should develop", Clive Fenton, the Chairman of Barratt Southern, told


The Wallis House part of the site was listed earlier this year, and the need to preserve the 1936 building will influence the shape of any new development.

Consultation Details:

Friday 5th December 2-6pm
Saturday 6th December 10am - 12 noon

International House
Great West Road
