A new business forum to champion trade in Isleworth and plans to revamp a local train station and its surrounding area will be the focus of a special meeting of the Isleworth and Brentford Area Forum (IBAF) next week.
The area forum members have agreed a list of priority projects which they will be championing over the next three years which also includes additional plans to improve cycleways for bikes and pathways for pedestrians on the A4 corridor.
The meeting will be held at the Music Room, Spring Grove House, at West Thames College in London Road, Isleworth, on Thursday 8 October from 7:30pm.
On the table for discussion are plans for the London Road Interest Group business consortium which aims to bring new trade to the area.
Representatives from Transport for London (TfL) have accepted an invitation to discuss improved access to The Great West Road and Gillette Corner for cyclists and pedestrians, while Hounslow Highways will be there to address concerns about street cleaning in Osterley.
There will also be an update on ambitious plans to renovate and enhance Gunnersbury and Redlees parks and South West Trains will be present to discuss plans to improve Isleworth Train Station.
The major works to preserve wildlife along the Duke of Northumberland’s River and surrounding roads has also been designated as a priority in the area.
Councillor Mel Collins, Chair of the forum, said: “We need this extraordinary meeting of the forum because there’s a lot going on in the area at the moment.
“We wanted a change of venue so that we can attract more people to get involved in issues which affect where they live. It’s an exciting time for the area and we want as many people as possible to come along and hear about what’s happening locally.”
