Chiswick High Road scheme gets go-ahead

Developer Londonnewcastle's proposals to redevelop a Chiswick High Road office block and neighbouring buildings with a 61-home mixed-use scheme have been approved.
Members of Hounslow Council’s planning committee gave the green light to the plans to demolish and redevelop 500 Chiswick High Road at their most recent meeting.
Londonnewcastle’s scheme - which Great West Magazine first reported in October - would see the Chiswick High Road block and two buildings in Chiswick Road replaced with a new building, ranging in height from five to seven storeys, and a row of five townhouses.
The new main structure would have 1,380 sq metres of commercial floorspace at its ground-floor and basement levels, with 56 new apartments occupying its upper floors. The townhouses would be constructed perpendicular to existing properties on Chiswick Road.
In a report to the 6 February meeting, planning officers said that the scheme’s main building would front Chiswick High Road, and was of a comparable height to both the tallest part of the current structure, and to neighbouring properties on the thoroughfare.
“The proposed development is considered to be acceptable in this location and would provide satisfactory accommodation and appropriate access and car parking on site with no harm to adjoining land uses,” they said.
