A planning application (P/2022/2977) has been submitted for a new piece of public art on the Sky Campus in Isleworth.

A ‘floating tree’ sculpture is being proposed for the centre of a roundabout on Grant Way which is off Syon Lane.

Designs submitted with the application suggest that what looks like a living tree would appear to be suspended in mid-air growing from an orb.

The structure, which would be 6.75 metres high would be suspended on three stainless steel supports and is part of a broader programme of public realm improvements in the area. It would be illuminated at night.

Access to the road is controlled by a 24-hour security gate and Grant Way is an adopted highway. The sculpture would be at the northern end of the road.

Hounslow Council planners are recommending approval of the plan as they say the design of the sculpture would preserve the character and appearance of the surrounding area and would not harm neighbouring properties or highway safety. The nearest residential properties are over 350 metres away.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
