Hanworth Road is one of the busiest road arteries in Hounslow, serving residential dwellings, businesses and public transport, as well as the highly popular SGSS Hounslow Gurdwara that serves as a social hub for thousands of regular visitors. It is a place of prayer and as such, it provides a vital service for the well-being of our communities. It is surrounded by pleasant traditional residential properties and has for many years benefitted from a large overflow car parking space leased to it by the government.

The Department for Education, along with the Hounslow Council and property developers now threaten to change this well established and peaceful environment in a way that we believe will seriously reduce the quality of life of all residents and worshippers. Continuing its plans of gross overdevelopment of land throughout Hounslow, beyond their projections of 2018, with a proposed plan that includes a ‘Special Education Needs’ school and a concrete multi-storey block of 125 residential units on the car park site.

While we can appreciate the need for a special needs school, perhaps with some social housing/family homes, everyone needs to know that an out of character multi-storey block located in this neighbourhood, has been quietly slipped into Council build plans, with very limited ‘virtual on-line’ consultation.

It has taken everyone by surprise and will have serious adverse effects on the community, including

  • Greater congestion not only on Hanworth Road but with knock-on effects, throughout the borough
  • Ever-increasing pollution of our environment through even higher traffic volumes
  • Detrimental effect on surrounding properties and amenities
  • Escalating noise pollution over and above the Heathrow aircraft noise we have to live with
  • Exacerbated hazards for our children, particularly those attending existing and new schools
  • Loss of light caused by high-rise concrete blocks, ruining the landscape and potentially fire & safety hazards.

JOIN US IN OPPOSING THIS MASSIVE OVEREXPANSION. Add your voice and say NO by signing this petition now. It only takes a couple of minutes!

We have limited protest time to stop this bulldozer exercise of power without proper consultation with the residents of Hounslow – the very people whose Quality of Life matters way beyond Blind Commercial Greed!
