Hounslow has taken two of London Mayor Boris Johnson's most influential staff on a tour of the borough's biggest development opportunities.

Deputy mayor for planning Sir Edward Lister and deputy mayor for housing, land and property Richard Blakeway toured the St George’s Kew Bridge development site, the site of Brentford FC’s proposed new stadium, the “Golden Mile” stretch of the A4, and the ISIS waterside development site.

They were also treated to a viewing of the iconic Gillette Building and the A4’s Skylon Tower.

Councillor Steve Curran, Hounslow’s new cabinet member for planning, regeneration and housing, said the tour was an excellent opportunity for the borough to show its hunger to build on its already-excellent business credentials.

“The borough is brimming with golden opportunities for profitable progress, and the visit of our colleagues from the mayor’s office endorses Hounslow’s exciting economic future.

“Hounslow is already home to some major blue chip businesses, including world beating brands names such as BSkyB, IBM and GlaxoSmithKline.

“Hounslow Council wants to build on the rich business heritage and push on to deliver prosperity for current and new residents to make Hounslow a happening place to be.”
