Blueprint for Brentford Adopted
Over 2,000 new homes planned by 2018
A blueprint for Brentford, outlining the council’s vision for the area has been formally adopted. Members gave the thumbs up for the Brentford Area Action Plan (BAAP) at a meeting of the Borough Council last month (Tuesday 27 January).
The BAAP will have a major influence on new development, and affect everyone who lives, works or simply visits the area. The plan took more than four years to develop involving hundreds of people in the consultation process.
Hounslow’s Lead Member for Environment and Planning, Cllr Barbara Reid, said:
“The Brentford Area Action Plan shows how we want to see this part of the borough revitalised, and sets out our vision for the future of Brentford, over the next ten years.
“The plan shows ideas for the continued rejuvenation of the Brentford area specifically the town centre, the Great West Road, Brentford’s river and canal network, as well as proposals for development sites.
“It also has policies on key local issues including, urban design, sustainable transport and the provision of large-scale arts, cultural, entertainment and leisure facilities.”
As a result of the plan’s adoption, the Council expects developers to take on board the community’s views when submitting plans for the Brentford area.
