Residents are urged to make their views known on proposals to move the Civic Centre into the heart of Hounslow.
The move to Bath Road was agreed by councillors at a Cabinet meeting in October last year.
The plans seek to include:
- A new Civic Centre with a community hub featuring café, an exhibition space and library
- Up to 700 homes on the old Civic Centre site – with up to 40 per cent affordable
- Preservation of the 19th century buildings, The Lawn and the Registry Office
- A new more fuel efficient and environmentally sustainable Civic Centre
- A new town centre development that revitalises the western end of the High Street
- The possibility of car parks in the wider town centre redevelopment to offset any loss of off-street car parking spaces at the Bath Road Car Park
Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said:
“Moving the Civic Centre into the heart of Hounslow will boost local businesses, save council taxpayer’s hundreds of thousands of pounds and free up valuable land for development.
“The move will ensure that residents receive first class services which meet their needs and support modern and more efficient ways of working. It will also support the creation of one of west London’s most vibrant retail, leisure and culture centres.”
