A developer seeking to develop the Adini site on the Great West Road has appealed against the council’s earlier refusal of its plan.

An application (P/2022/1973) was originally submitted in September of last year to build two blocks up to six storeys high containing 51 flats opposite Gillette Corner as well as restoring the existing Art Deco building.

The site is next to the Access Storage building on the southern side of the A4 around 80 metres west of the junction with Syon Lane. The plot is a 0.21 hectare rectangular space which currently has some vacant warehouses on it.

The plan would have seen all of the non-listed buildings demolished and the area landscaped with car parking provided.

The Osterley and Wyke Green Residents’ Association (OWGRA) says it was not informed of the original plan before it was submitted to the council and that local ward councillors were also unaware of what was being proposed.

There would be a 'winter garden' between the two new blocks

OWGRA is opposed to the scheme due to its concerns about increased population density in the area particularly with there still being the prospect that the Tesco/Homebase twin developments could be approved.

The appeal will be determined on the basis of written representations which must be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate by 19 December quoting the appeal reference APP/F5540/W/23/3323037.
