Strand On The GreenAssociation


Bell & Crown


Following SoGA's intervention made at the request of members and SotG residents Fullers has had to seek RETROSPECTIVE PLANNING PERMISSION for the glass box erected over the riverside terrace at the Bell & Crown as it does not comply with the planning permission granted.


There is now a chance to have this removed but that is reliant upon objections being received by the Planners at Hounslow Council.


If you are unhappy with the glassed in box which is both unsightly and uncharacteristic of the Strand on the Green Conservation Area then please lodge an objection to Application P/2020/0145 - The Bell & Crown at email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  with copy to the Conservation Officers;

Note that an objection from a couple from the same email address counts as one whereas an objection from a couple but from their separate email addresses counts as two.

Further consultation on proposed cycling and walking improvements in West London

This consultation relates to the Chiswick-Brentford section of CS9.

Dear stakeholder

In autumn 2017 we consulted on proposals to transform roads in Hammersmith, Chiswick and Brentford town centres as part of Cycle Superhighway 9 (CS9). We did this in close partnership with our London borough partners and other key stakeholders. The scheme is an important part of the Mayor’s Healthy Streets Approach, which aims to make London a greener, healthier and more pleasant place to live and work through encouraging walking, cycling and the use of public transport.

Local List Consultation

Currently LBH has a consultation on proposed additions to the local list. Last year, LBH invited the community to make nominations to the local list.  LBH has now reviewed those nominations and compiled a list of proposed additions to the local list. LBH would now like your views on these proposed additions.


The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has formally commenced an electoral review of the London Borough of Hounslow. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the review and seek your views on future ward boundaries for the council.

Reading Volunteers wanted

At Strand on the Green Infants and Nursery we provide children with reading experiences which aim to inspire and ignite an enquiring mind.

We have a number of volunteers from the local community who come in and help us achieve this. We’d love to have more because they do a fantastic job and make a big difference to our children’s lives and experience at school. If you are able to spare a little time weekly or fortnightly to read with our children we’d be delighted to welcome you. We do not expect a long term commitment and are flexible around the time you can give.

If you are interested please call (0208 994 7921) or email the school office (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with your details.

SoGA Launches 'House History' Project


After the success of the BBC's 'A House Through Time' TV programme, we are excited to announce the launch of the Strand on the Green 'House History Initiative'. This is intended as the first of a number of projects aimed at connecting the families who live in Strand on the Green today with the people who lived in their homes in times past.

What's in a name?

As you may have read in the latest edition of Signals, over the years, we have lost some alleys that historically connected Back Lane (know now as Thames Road) to the Strand towpath. Today we have Post Office Alley and Ship Alley but have you ever wondered about the name of other two remaining alleys – the one at the side of the Bell & Crown and the other at the side of the Hopkin Morris Homes of Rest?
