TfL are running their consultation until 18 December 2015 and have delivered this consultation document to households in the area, they are also running an online survey which can be accessed here.
To offer residents an opportunity to find out more and complete their responses to this consultation, I have arranged a meeting from 11.30 am to 1.00 pm on Wednesday 9 December 2015, at space kindly provided by Thistleworth Tennis Club, 129A Ridgeway Road North, Isleworth, Middlesex, TW7 5LX.
Currently, the H28 stops very nearby.
TfL staff will be there to answer questions and carry paper copies of the survey for residents to complete.
Tea and coffee will be available too, courtesy of Thistleworth.
All are welcome.
