Proposal to remove the left turn from Great West Road on to Thornbury Road South and installation of controlled green man crossing

As part of the development of Campion House (now Marbaix Gardens and Blumenthal Close), Hounslow Council received funding to make transport related improvements to the junction of the A4 Great West Road and Thornbury Road to:

  • provide an additional lane for northbound traffic on Thornbury Road to ease congestion
  • introduce a formal green man crossing for pedestrians and cyclists on Thornbury Road South, running parallel with Great West Road
  • remove the left turn movement on to Thornbury Road South for vehicles travelling west on Great West Road.

From a distribution of 750 in October 2016, 124 responses were returned by residents from the area south of Great West Road,

At this meeting, Hounslow Council’s traffic engineers will explain the proposals as well as advise on the outcome of the consultation with residents.

There is now a new planning application for the temporary car park for Sky on the often empty site of the former Shell petrol station, once known as Syon Gate Garage, across from the other one and Gillette bang opposite Homebase.

Promoted as Gillette South, the site owners, via agents DP9, have applied for an up to 14 level structure to incorporate basement self storage, offices, a mix of 102 flats with 323 habitable rooms (18 one bed, 62 two bed, 10 three bed, 12 unknown) and 53 car parking spaces (42 residential, 2 visitor, 9 commercial).

A wide range of documents supporting the application can be found on the Hounslow Council website planning pages here, accessible using the planning reference P/2017/0053.

Plans are also available for inspection at Osterley Library, St Mary’s Crescent.

A copy of materials from the most recent exhibition of the development proposals can be found here.

A copy of the notice sent to neighbours by Hounslow Council can be found here and comments on the application will be received until close to when the application is considered at the Planning Committee some time in Spring 2017.

As a member of the council’s planning committee, I am not able to pre judge this application until it is reported but am keen that residents are able to access details and have questions answered while it progresses.
