Osterley Park Hotel Premises Licence to be reviewed

Under new management since early 2017, the Osterley Park Hotel at 764 Great West Road, Isleworth has seen numerous enhancements to the buildings’ fabric. Other changes to what is on offer have meant increased use and varied events that have necessitated a review of the existing premises licence, applied for by Hounslow Council’s Licensing Enforcement Officer and supported by Hounslow Police.

Osterley Park Hotel, 764 Great West Road, Isleworth

The grounds for review concern the management of the premises, consistent alleged breaches of licence conditions and complaints received by the Council alleging anti social behaviour associated to the premises.

The objective of the review is to put in place a series of conditions to improve the management of the premises and promote the Licensing Act objectives. The proposed conditions relate to CCTV, SIA door supervisors log book, incident (complaints) log and staff training records.

A copy of the application and supporting documents can be viewed here:

For a representation to be relevant, it must deal with the effect of the application on the promotion of the four licensing objectives.

  • The prevention of crime and disorder
  • Public safety
  • The prevention of public nuisance
  • The protection of children from harm.

If anyone wishes to submit a representation, this must be done so by 18 January 2018 via email to Licensing@hounslow.gov.uk or in writing to Licensing, London Borough of Hounslow, Civic Centre, Lampton Road, Hounslow, Middlesex, TW3 4DN

Long awaited improvements at Syon Lane

Looking at the photo archive kept for Syon Lane since late 2014, it is very pleasing that work with residents and Hounslow Council’s Traffic Team is about to bear fruit.

Syon Lane green verges to be protected between Gillette Corner and Macfarlane Lane

Not neglected but in parts worn and suffering from the impacts of limited resources to enforce and repair, funds were sought and now identified to remedy effects of haphazard parking on the green verges.

It’s an association going back to the last time of trying to represent this slice of Osterley and Spring Grove Ward in the 1990s when it was part of the former Isleworth North Ward. One concern then was the environmental impact of the new Tesco store to be built on the former United Biscuits factory. At the time, concessions and funding were won to sympathetically beautify and improve the access to the shops and homes between 38 and 150 Syon Lane.

Scoping the proposed verge protection works on Syon Lane, Isleworth

Later this month, works will begin to install bird mouth fencing around the green areas together with additional lighting, details shered with residents can be seen here and here.

Noting that this will improve the environment of one part of Syon Lane, residents’ concerns still remain for the environment further north along this busy road and these will continue to be pursued.

Big Planning in Little Hounslow: Local Plan Review consultation events

Hounslow’s Local Plan Review runs until 10 December 2017

 

Wednesday 1 November 2017: at Thistleworth Tennis Club, 127a Ridgeway Road North, TW7 5LX from 5.00 pm to 8.00 pm including a Workshop between 6.00 pm and 7.00 pm

Wednesday 8 November 2017: at Brentford Free Church, Boston Manor Road, TW8 8DW from 5.00 pm to 8.00 pm including a Workshop between 6.00 pm and 7.00 pm

By law, all local authorities need to have a Local Plan in place to guide council planners and developers, whether small or large, on what development proposals are likely to be acceptable.

The government’s Planning Inspectorate approved Hounslow’s Local Plan in 2015 with provisos that there would be early reviews for the borough’s West Area (Heston, Feltham, Hanworth, Cranford, Bedfont) and the Great West Corridor (Syon Lane to Chiswick Roundabout), a fair chunk of the latter in Osterley and Spring Grove Ward.

The process started almost immediately with release in December 2015 of initial consultation documents for both areas seeking comments on proposals for possible developments and associated infrastructure such as new transport links. Within these, there was a concurrent call for sites seeking nominations for any sites thought suitable for development; housing, employment, leisure or other uses.

By the closing date of that consultation, in February 2016, I submitted responses with views on both localities, for the Great West Corridor and for the West Area.

The Local Plan Review is currently at its next stage and residents are encouraged to participate and contribute their comments to help shape the final document that will be presented to the Planning Inspectorate later in 2018.

As it stands, there are a number of possible redevelopment proposals which if realised are likely to have impact in Osterley and Spring Grove Ward. These include sites such as Tesco Syon Lane (563 housing units and retail), West Cross, the former Firestone factory (827 housing units and employment) and the Gillette building (114 housing units and employment. More details on these and other locations are shown in the site allocation document.

The Great West Corridor Local Plan Review document can be found here and there is a heap of further information on these dedicated Hounslow Council website pages.

The consultation runs from Monday 23 October to Sunday 10 December 2017. Please take part and would be happy to discuss any aspects with Osterley and Spring Grove residents prior.
