An application has been submitted to Hounslow Council to demolish a row of garages on Carville Crescent to build new housing.

The nine garages would be replaced by two storey buildings containing four one bed flats plus associated cycle storage, landscaping, refuse and recycling storage

The garages originally belonged to the council but they were on one of seventeen sites transferred to Sapphire Independent Housing as part of the borough’s approved Small Sites Programme.

The transfer obliges the developer to use the sites only for social housing in in perpetuity.

The existing building is a one storey building consisting of garages staggered into 3 groups of 3. There is large concrete surfaces forecourt sloping down to the road from a higher level at the boundary at the back of the garages.

The new units would include two ground floor flats with some garden space and two first floor flats with a balcony space overlooking Carville Crescent.

This application states that this forecourt is in poor condition as are the garages. It is claimed that they are not generally used for car parking but as storage mainly by people outside the area.
