The London Borough of Hounslow (Hounslow), home to 276,200 people, is one of the capital’s largest boroughs, covering 56 Square kilometers and stretching from the border of Heathrow Airport in the west to Chiswick in the east. Strategically situated along the A4/M4 corridor, the borough acts as the conduit between central London and the outer west London sub-region including Heathrow Airport.


Overview planned capacity for new homes

Hounslow is well connected by road, rail (overland and London Underground) and air giving it good access to central London, the rest of the UK and to international destinations. The borough has an expansive road network – including the major arterial routes of the A4 (Great West Road), A316 and M4 Motorway – which pass through the borough and play a strategic role as a route in and out of London and between Heathrow Airport and elsewhere in the capital. North-south routes, particularly the A312 and A406 (north Circular), are also significant.


Transport #2 in concentration of Transport & Logistics jobs in London

The borough has a strong local economy with high rates of employment and entrepreneurship and a highly skilled population. It is one of only 9 local authority areas (out of 152) in the UK where all the schools have been classified as either good or outstanding by Ofsted; it has low economic inactivity levels and a diverse and hard-working population.


Education 140 languages spoken making borough vibrant and entrepreneurial

Hounslow Council’s Skills and Employment Team have launched Find Your Career which aims to provide detailed local labour market information on a number of careers for different local groups which include jobseekers, careers advisers and in particular young people to ensure there is a consistent baseline of local careers information available to Hounslow residents. The Work Hounslow team understand the importance of supporting local businesses and educating Hounslow residents on the careers available to them.
