Planning Committee to Decide Lionel Road
Details of the majority of residential towers finalised
This Thursday sees Hounslow's Planning Committee to decide on the reserved matters regarding the residential developments (excluding the Duffy site) that are part of the Lionel Road Stadium development.
Planning permission was granted in November 2015 for the full stadium but only for the outline of the residential development. This application discusses matters such as access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale of the 648 residential units as well as associated parking and commercial floorspace.
Marie Rabouhans, Chair of West Chiswick and Gunnersbury Society (WCGS) will be asking members of the Planning Committee to reject the current scheme so that a more satisfactory scheme can be brought forward.
Objections from WCGS are shared by other resident groups, such as the Brentford Community Council (BCC), Strand on the Green Association (SOGA) and the Kew Society.
Marie summarises the objections thus: "WCGS objects strongly to this scheme for 648 of 910 of the residential units associated with the Brentford Football Stadium. The Society considers that the detailed proposals submitted pursuant to the outline element of the hybrid planning permission granted in June 2014 are unacceptable in many significant respects. We have studied the Report on the Agenda for the meeting on 10 December and we have written to the members of the Planning Committee pointing out that:
The planning application will be decided on Thursday 9th December 2016. The meeting takes place at 7.30pm in The Civic Centre. The full agenda can be read here.
A decision on the Compulsory Purchase Order is expected in the new year.
