Public get say on regeneration blueprint

Thu 13 June 2013, 10:46 am

Hounslow Council is set to put its 15-year planning blueprint on show to residents, businesses and developers.

A six-week public consultation on policy options for the borough’s Local Plan begins tomorrow, and includes potential sites for 7,800 new homes that could be constructed by 2030.

Councillor Steve Curran, the authority’s regeneration and housing lead, said that while Hounslow had changed dramatically over the past decade and a half, there were other areas still crying out for regeneration.

“This plan is the blueprint for any changes, setting out what we expect from developments in an area,“ he said.

“It also sets out locations for potential new homes for families, where facilities such as schools should be built and where shops and services should be provided.

“The local plan isn't just about building, it’s about preserving areas that we want to keep as they are, and protecting and improving the local environment.”

The draft plan is open for comment until 26 July.
