Chiswick Curve saga continues

A public inquiry launched on 12 June to look at controversial plans to build a 32-storey skyscraper in Chiswick.
Developer Starbones, is appealing against Hounslow Council's 2017 refusal to approve Chiswick Curve, which it wants to build at Chiswick Roundabout. The council planning officers recommended the plans be refused on the grounds of its size and its potential to cause "substantial harm" to local heritage sites such as Kew Gardens.
The consultation is taking place in Boston Manor, Brentford, for four weeks where Hounslow Council will present its case for rejecting planning permission for the scheme.
Other organisations including Historic England, The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, the Kew Society and the West Chiswick & Gunnersbury Society will also present their evidence for opposing the plans, with the final decision taken by eminent planning inspector Paul Griffiths.
