HOW TO RESPOND/OBJECT TO THE NEW DOCUMENTATION SUBMITTED BY THE DEVELOPER IN SUPPORT OF THEIR PLANNING APPLICATIONS TO REDEVELOP TESCO & HOMEBASE

If you have objected already, please object again, stating that your initial objections still stand, and that the developer’s revised submission has done very little to address residents’ concerns. 


You could use the objections stated here:

 

  • Excessive height/massing/density, in relation to existing residential areas and listed Gillette building.

  • Out of character with the area (mainly 2-storey houses).

  • Overdevelopment: adding 2,150 homes in mostly tower blocks (up to 17 storeys) to our neighbourhood of mainly 2-storey houses. The population would increase by about 6,000 which is equivalent to a small town (eg the size of Bagshot or Egham).

  • Serious lack of decent-sized family homes to meet Hounslow’s dire shortage of 3-4 bedroom homes.

  • Adverse effect on heritage assets (including the Grade II listed Gillette building between the two sites).

  • Inadequate public transport, no improvements to roads, infrastructure and amenities, with no firm plans or funds to upgrade in the foreseeable future.

  • Unacceptable traffic (dangerous/over-capacity at Gillette Corner), route used by ambulances.

  • Environmental impact (increased noise, air pollution, carbon emissions & poor sustainability).

  • No justification for demolishing Tesco and Homebase instead of retaining or re-purposing.

  • Insufficient measures to meet Zero Carbon targets and Climate Emergency measures.

 

You can also add that you agree with many of the recommendations from Hounslow’s Design Review Panel published on 28 January 2021

 

Anyone aged 16 or over can respond to the planning application so we encourage every member of your household (aged 16+) to respond (and you don’t have to have received a consultation letter to respond).

The best way to object this time is by e-mail to Planning.AppResponses@hounslow.gov.uk quoting the two relevant planning ref. nos. in the title (P/2020/3099 and P/2020/3100), and making sure you give your full name and address at the end of the e-mail.  Make sure you say in your response that you object to the planning applications!
