former Hounslow House
Meyer Homes

Submitted proposals

The project team submitted proposals for the Former Hounslow House site to the London Borough of Hounslow in August 2016. The submitted plans include:

  • 293 new homes including affordable and family homes
  • 10% of homes wheelchair adaptable or accessible
  • 926m2 of commercial space fronting onto London Road
  • New pedestrian and cycling connection which improves access from London Road to Hounslow East Underground Station and beyond
  • Public space and landscaping improvements, particularly at the pedestrian and cycle entrances to the north and south of the site
  • A network of new outdoor green spaces within the development for the benefit of new and existing residents

DESIGN EVOLUTION

The proposed new Mews houses (view looking south from within the site, towards London Road)

The plans evolved as a result of our discussions with neighbours, community groups, the Central Area Forum at LB Hounslow, the wider community and the Council’s and the GLA’s planning officers. The main changes in response to feedback were:

  • Reduction in height – a reduction in height on parts of the scheme closest to the boundary with existing residents. The heights of the Mews houses which border North Drive properties have been reduced from three to two storeys, and the apartment buildings also reduced in height and set back along the eastern edge.
  • Improved landscaping – enhancements made to the overall landscape strategy to discourage anti-social behaviour and increase the quality and quantity from the original proposals. This includes landscaping on the London Road frontage and in the north of the site where the proposed pedestrian and cycle link connects to the public footpath.

  • Removal of building – removal of a building in the proposals first shown to the community adjacent to Aces Court; this has been replaced by a landscaped ‘buffer’.
  • Strengthened parking limits – new residents will not be eligible or able to apply for parking permits. There are ongoing discussions with the Council regarding the Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) to ensure new residents are aware of their restrictions and receive adequate guidance when buying a property.
