Comment on this story on the

A 3D model has been created of the proposed developments go ahead on the Tesco & Homebase sites around Gillette Corner.

The model was commissioned by the Osterley & Wyke Green Residents' Association after what they say was the failure of developer Berkeley/St Edward to keep their promise to produce their own model. In addition the massive number of drawings presented with the applications contains little to give any indication of the scale of the development in context.

The model shows how the buildings when complete would dwarf the Gillette Tower that sits between the two sites.

There will be a chance to see the model on Saturday 24 October, for 10.30 am – 4 pm at the Nishkam School, Syon Lane, TW7 5PN. It will be outdoors, just outside the front entrance under cover. There will be parking available at the school.

The model has been professionally produced and is accurate and to scale.

OWGRA says, “It shows how imposing, overpowering and out of character with the area the proposed buildings would be and has to be seen to be believed. The 3D model will be of particular interest to those who live nearby and would be affected by these developments. So book now to attend the exhibition. OWGRA will be at the exhibition to answer questions and provide further information about the proposed developments.”

As we are now in Tier 2 (high risk) and due to COVID-19 restrictions access to the outdoor exhibition is limited to 4 people at a time for a 15-minute slot. It is essential that you book a slot.

Scroll down on the Eventbrite booking page to see all the available time slots.

Responding to the planning applications for the redevelopment of Tesco and Homebase OWGRA have also produced guidelines on how to respond to these two planning applications.

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.

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.

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