Residents will have noticed the shroud over Coombe House at 7 St Johns Road, Isleworth where a Holiday Inn was once mooted but now in the throes of a government permitted scheme to convert this former office block to flats.
Little reminder is required of the Moore Brothers and neighbouring properties sell off and approval of flats and a couple of shops on planning application P2017/3612 approved in December 2017 but still showing in progress on the Hounslow Council planning pages.
Developer the Citrus Group Limited, have recently been in discussion with Hounslow Council on the two hitherto unlet warehouse units behind Coombe House and Moore Brothers to build flats and some commercial on their footprints. The developer’s agent is referring to Units 1 and 2 Station Works at Rennels Way as derelict but on inspection anyone can see that they are being used as safe and secure site storage and facilities for the Coombe House job. Perhaps the rent previously sought was too much otherwise they could have been let to small businesses offering start ups opportunities to thrive.
So these sites are being looked at for development and despite what appeared reluctance to engage before a planning application was submitted.
A developer’s representative have been asked at short notice to attend to explain and pitch at the St Johns Residents Association monthly meeting on
Monday 8 April 2019 at 8.00 pm
St Johns Centre
80 St Johns Road
Isleworth, Middlesex, TW7 6RU
Because of meetings elsewhere, no councillors will be present so a request has been made to the council’s head of planning for further engagement before a planning application is submitted and expected.
Further updates in due course.
