Help shape development and regeneration

Residents are being invited to have their say on exciting plans for development and regeneration in the west of the borough and the Great West Corridor.

Hounslow Council is hosting a consultation from Monday 23 October to Sunday 10 December on the Local Plan Review and inviting the community to comment on where new homes will be built, jobs created, green areas improved and new public space created.

The Local Plan Review will help shape the future of Great West Corridor and West of Borough areas for the next 15 years. It includes:

  • An overall vision for the west of the borough and the Great West Corridor
  • Policies regarding space and addressing specific issues in the area
  • Place policies for areas where regeneration and growth will be the focus
  • Minor amendments to the existing Local Plan 2015
  • The identification of potential development sites

The West of Borough area forms part of the Heathrow Opportunity Area and the Great West Corridor area has been identified as one of the new Opportunity Areas in the emerging London Plan – the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan’s proposal for significant business growth and housing development with improved public transport access.

This is the second stage of consultation for the Local Plan review particularly for West of Borough and Great West Corridor areas (Preferred Options Consultation).

The aim is to support opportunities for housing delivery, job creation and the provision of new infrastructures to serve the local community and new development.

The plans also support the delivery of a new Southern Rail Access into Heathrow Airport in the West of Borough and proposes new passenger services to Southall Crossrail and Old Oak Common (Crossrail and HS2) in the Great West Corridor.

There are a number of ways in which residents can find out about the plan and comment on it.

Drop-in sessions and workshops will be taking place on the following dates:

Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council and Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “It’s extremely important we get the views of our residents on the Local Plan Review, as we want to ensure that regeneration and development enhances local people’s lives.

“We will read and analyse every comment our residents make and will use it to inform the next version of the Local Plan review due for consultation in Summer 2018.

“We have a fantastic opportunity to grow and develop further as a borough and this is just one way of doing this.

“Please give us your views, as we look to shape a positive future for you, our residents, in the issues that matter including new homes, jobs and better transport facilities amongst others.”
