Existing block to be demolished for five storey building
A visualisation of the new Field House from the developer
A planning application (P/2022/3301) has been submitted to Hounslow Council seeking permission to demolish Field House on Field Lane and build a five-storey block in its place.
At the moment there are five flats in the two-storey building in the cul-de-sac close to Brentford High Street but, if the proposed scheme was approved, this would be increased to 23.
The site is bordered on the south east by a three storey apartment block, to the south west by a two storey terraced housing, to the north a large residential dwelling and to the north east by a wooded area.

The plan, which has been drawn up by PARKdesigned would consist of 5 one bedroom, 14 two bedroom and 4 three bedroom units.
The site backs on to what was previously the tracks of a part of the Great Western Railway until 1957 when the local station was demolished.
Another view from the developer of the proposed scheme
A report commissioned by the applicant concluded that there is a good level of onstreet parking available that could be utilised by future residents of the re-development.
The amount of affordable housing in the development is not specified in the application but a report with the submission states that this could be provided off-site through a financial contribution or by including affordable one bedroom flats or two one bedroom and on two bedroom units.
