What’s new – October 2018?


Following an exhibition earlier in the year about this  development, a public meeting will be held to present the latest proposals that constitute the planning application for the former Shell garage site on Tuesday 4 December, 7.00-8.30 pm, at Grasshoppers Sports Club (in the Conquest Bar on the first floor), Syon Lane, TW7 5PN. There is plenty of parking on site.

It is important that as many local residents come along as possible.  This will be your last opportunity to see the plans, ask questions and voice your views before the planning application is submitted to the Council by the developer.  Councillor Louki will chair the meeting.


 Please find attached 3 draft response documents on the 2 proposed Conservation Area Appraisals (CAA) from the Council. Two of these draft response documents (one for each CA) have been developed by Sheila O’Reilly (OWGRA Planning Officer) and reviewed by Laurence Hawcroft (OWGRA Vice-Chairman) and will be official OWGRA responses. The third, for the Spring Grove CA,has been developed by David Pavett (OWGRA Webmaster) and GinaRichards (OWGRA member), and will be submitted in their name with a statement that it is endorsed by OWGRA. Our summary view is that we strongly support these documents, which are a substantial improvement on what was in place before and will significantly improve our ability to protect the essential character of our area from inappropriate development. Please provide any comments on these documents to us by Friday, 30 November, after which we will finalise them and submit them to the Council. You can also respond yourself individually to the consultation by the closing date of 10 December.
