Move information has emerged about development plans on two major sites in the Brentford area.

It now appears that over 2,000 more flats are planned for the Homebase and Tesco Osterley sites near Gillette Corner.

St Edward Homes recently held public consultations on the future of the two locations.

The proposal is to build a new Tesco store on the Homebase site, taking around 3 years and then develop the current Tesco site which will take a further 8 years. This allows a superstore to be open throught the construction.

The new Tesco store will be of similar size to the existing and have two floors of car parking above it, with spaces reduced from 625 to 400. Cars will enter from Syon Lane. The petrol station will not be replaced.

There will be 500 new homes with 125 residential parking spaces and 1 acre of green space on top. The building heights would range from 9-16 storeys.

There will be a cafe in the store and a community space on the first floor overlooking the junction.

The proposals for the current Tesco site are a lot less developed but some 1,650 flats will be provided of which 35% could be affordable.

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.
