The Saturday (12 December) there will be another chance to see the 3D model of the massive Tesco/Homebase developments.

From 11am - 2pm the model will be continuing its tour of local venues, and will be on display again this Saturday just outside the exit from the Homebase store at Gillette Corner

At the same time Osterley & Wyke Green Residents’ Association (OWGRA) litter pickers will be doing Homebase a huge favour that morning clearing the litter from their car park, which they say is in a pretty disgusting state.

Over 150 local residents including Ruth Cadbury MP are estimated to have attended a previous exhibition in October of the model.

It was commissioned by OWGRA to show the true scale of the schemes around Gillette Corner. Opponents of the scheme have said that the documentation submitted by the developer does not give a proper indication of the size of the planned buildings.

A spokesperson for the group said, “We had a successful session at the Osterley Garden Centre last Saturday informing customers of the plans for these two sites, and this has resulted in more objections being submitted to Hounslow Council. So we hope for a similar result this weekend, ie more objections submitted to the Council, to reach or even exceed our target of 500 objections!”

As a local resident added, “The 3D model REALLY shows you the awful impact it would have on the area. You truly get the sense of scale and how dense the development is. Truly shocks to see how it towers over everything. Please take a look if you possibly can make it.”

The latest newsletter from the association is due to be delivered to households in the area this weekend. The December issue concentrates on the claims made by the developer in a brochure that they recently delivered in the area and the association gives its take on what the developer is saying.

The reference numbers for the applications are Homebase site P/2020/3099, Tesco site P/2020/3100.

You can access the Design and Access Statement for the Homebase site here and the same document for the Tesco site which the developer has named Osterley Place here. Both documents, while containing a significant number of CGI visualisations of how the developments might look have few which give any impression of how their scale might look in context.

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