The application has now been submitted

Thank you for your interest in the proposals to regenerate two important sites in Brentford.

The plans, which were exhibited in November 2016 and July this year, are to move Watermans Arts Centre from its current location to an improved new building in the heart of Brentford, on the site of the former police station on Half Acre. The current Watermans site would then be developed to provide new homes and an improved Thames path.

Following extensive consultation with local people, planning applications for the two sites have now been submitted to Hounslow Council (reference P/2017/3371 and P/2017/3372) and members of the public can provide their feedback on the plans. We have been very grateful for the positive feedback that we have received from local people. Over two thirds of responses to our consultation indicated support for the proposals.

We welcomed your comments during the public consultation and we would now like to encourage you to provide your comments to the council – it will only take two minutes.

Let Hounslow Council know what you think of the plans

You can e-mail the case officer Stephen Hissett at Hounslow council by clicking this link or write your comments directly onto the Hounslow’s Planning Website here. Your comments will be taken into consideration by the council when they make a decision on whether to grant planning permission.

As a reminder, the benefits include:

  • Much needed new homes including affordable housing.
  • A greatly improved modern arts centre in the centre of the community.
  • An improved public path that runs along the Thames which will be open and accessible to all.
