During the period between mid November 2017 and mid January 2018 our Environment Committee examined 14 planning applications in all parts of the Borough, and considered parts of the draft New London Plan. The Committee expressed concern about the overbearing redevelopment of the Argos Homebase Superstore site on Western Ave W5. The height of the proposed north east corner block should be reduced to be comparable with the approved development of the former Savoy Cinema site across the road to the east. There was also concern about the unsympathetic design of the proposed extension to 11-12 Station Parade Uxbridge Rd, W5, and the creation of second and third floor levels. It was felt that the proposed alterations failed to reflect the character and proportions of neighbouring properties to the west.
