Planning presentation meetings are where promoters of developments show their ideas to members of the council planning committee prior to the submission of a formal planning application.

So far, there is just one item on the agenda, a proposal for the “demolition of existing club house and construction of a two to four storey, 1,150 pupil secondary school, including ancillary access, parking, sports pitches and multi use games area” for the as yet to be established, mixed and non religious Bolder Academy.  The proposed school was one of the items presented and discussed at the OWGRA meeting on 6 December 2016.

Residents are welcome to attend the meeting as observers but are not allowed to speak although I would welcome any appropriate questions to convey during the proceedings.

Hounslow Council planning experts, Robert Coomber and Melek Egren were present to help clarify the application and suggest more confidence in the process that may, perhaps, have been brought in hall prior to the start of the meeting.

The 120 people present have received a summary of the evening but for those not there, the notes can be found here.

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.

Back in 2008, permission was gained by the owners of this former Shell petrol station and Contitrades House site opposite Homebase on Syon Lane, Isleworth for a self storage facility but that didn’t happened.

A couple of different proposals had been mooted by owners Precis since, both involving a mix of self storage and mainly tall residential but did not progress.

A new scheme is about to be revealed to residents and councillors before a planning application is submitted to Hounslow Council, possibly by the end of this year.

To allow residents to comment, an exhibition is taking place at St Francis of Assisi Church Hall, 865 Great West Road, Isleworth, TW7 5PD, over two days on Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 October 2016 between 4.00 pm and 8.00 pm. The developer’s architects and planning advisors will be present to explain the proposals.

A copy of the invitation sent last week can be found here.

Also, on Thursday 20 October at 8.10 pm (not 7.30 pm as billed) at Hounslow Civic Centre, members of the council’s Planning Committee will also have the opportunity to do the same during at a Planning Development Presentation. This is a monthly event where development proposals ideas are brought to councillors for comments prior to full applications being made. Members of the public are welcome to attend but do not have speaking rights.

The site owner’s planning consultants have provided this summary briefing to councillors.

A planning application by Sky, for temporary car parking on this site has been submitted to Hounslow Council and is reported elsewhere on this blog; it has no immediate bearing on this matter.

Not in Osterley & Spring Grove Ward, the Duke of Northumberland’s schemes for Park Road Allotments and replacement will also be given an outing at the 20 October Planning Development Presentation.
