Development News – January 2017

Nishkam School: Work on the school continues and OWGRA is in constant contact with the construction company BAM to ensure that disruption to the local community is minimised. The new school entrance has been established and over the next two months the road itself will be widened to facilitate entry to the school. Any particular issues or queries should be posed to BAM Construction on 07973 141653 or 07541 338770 or to bomeara@bam.co.uk; please keep us informed.

Grasshoppers Rugby Club: There have been no further developments since the approval of the planning application by Hounslow Council in November. There is no indication of when work will start neither has the contractor as yet been identified. Check the Council Planning website for further details.

Bolder Academy: Planning application awaited. Following the presentation made at the OWGRA public meeting on 6 December, there have been no further developments. It is thought that at the earliest the school will not open until September 2019.

Gillette Corner South: The application has been submitted. The documents are available for viewing on the Hounslow Council website (planning application P/2017/0053) and in Osterley Library.  Forward any comments and views asap to LB Hounslow’s Planning Officers and to Ward Members so that residents’ view are taken into account.

Osterley Library & Bowls Club: At our public meeting on 6 December Cllr Curran did not rule out a transformation of Osterley Library and the Bowls Club. It will depend on circumstances and whether or not both institutions have sufficient local support.

Jersey Gardens:  Issues have been raised about the pruning of shrubs within and on the borders of the gardens as well as continuing anti-social behaviour within. These issues have been raised with Hounslow Council and their contractors, as well as the police.

Quakers Lane & Braybourne Drive: Anti-social behaviour and drug dealing have been reported in Quakers’ Lane and Braybourne Drive. This has been reported to our local councillors and the police.

Thornbury Road: A ‘No Left Turn’ has been proposed in respect of road traffic proceeding westwards along the A4 and wanting to turn left into Thornbury Road. This is to protect pedestrian traffic wanting to cross Thornbury Road at that junction and expedite westward travel in the evening rush hour. There are contrasting views on this proposal.

Dudley House, The Grove: The application to convert this former residential care home into residential flats was rejected at the Planning Committee of 12 Jan. Details are available on the Council’s planning website.

Osterley Park: New cycle routes and a cycle training area were approved at the 12 January Planning Committee meeting.
