Two Public Events on Tuesday, 17th July, 2018

There are two Public Events on Tuesday, 17th July, on significant issues affecting local residents. Both of these will take place at the Osterley Park Hotel

– The first of these is a Public Exhibition, between 2 pm and 8 pm, on the new plans for the old Shell Garage site at Gillette Corner. This proposal is for self-storage units and offices, but we have no idea at this stage of the details. This is the seventh proposal for this site since 2005; previous proposals included a car showroom (2-storey), self-storage units, a 14-storey mixed use development (residential, self-storage and retail), then an 11-storey mixed use development (residential, self-storage and offices), the latter having been refused planning permission by Council Planning Officers in August 2017. Do please visit, see what is proposed and then let us know what you think of the plans.

– the second is a Public Meeting between 6pm and 8pm, on the Nishkam School Parking Management Proposals (i.e. the proposed Red Route scheme in the streets around the school). The Council has organised this meeting as a follow-up to the 23 May OWGRA Public Meeting to present their proposals to prevent traffic chaos when the new Nishkam School opens, and to answer residents’ questions. A letter has been delivered to households near the new school, and here is the link to the FAQs

It is important that we have good attendance from residents who will be affected by transport to the Nishkam School so that all views are aired and a decision can then be taken quickly on implementation of traffic and parking restrictions in time for the opening of the school.
