Strand On The GreenAssociation


Update on Brentford Community Stadium

Message from Sally Stephens (New Stadium Project Manager):

As you are probably already aware, on 7 December last year the London Borough of Hounslow (LBH) Planning Committee resolved to approve the planning amendments submitted in September 2017 for the Brentford Community Stadium and enabling residential development. The Council’s decision notices formalising the approvals were published on 1 February 2018, along with our revised Section 106 Agreement outlining commitments to the Council and local communities.

Future Borough Strategy

The Hounslow Together Strategic Partnership has developed a framework to update the Future Borough Strategy to better reflect the challenges and priorities for future partnership work. The Partnership would like to invite you to review and give your feedback on this.

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?

Proposal for new pedestrian signage

LBH intends to introduce better pedestrian “way-finding” signage in Chiswick in 2017/18, using the Legible London signs. This signage has been developed by TfL as an intuitive, consistent, and easy-to-use system that includes maps and directional information to help people navigate by foot. The scheme is intended to be consistent across London so that the public know what to look for if they are in an unfamiliar area.

Please see attachment for further details.

Kew Bridge - pedestrian throughway update

St George's planning application for a 'cosmetic' make-over of the steps under Kew Bridge was granted last Thursday by a vote of 9:2 with one abstention.  This is a great shame as LBH's decision flys in the face of the Discrimination & Disability Act 2010 as no provision is made in the St George application for wheelchair access.
SoGA put forward the proposal to open either Arch #3 or #4 as a throughway but regrettably this was dismissed by the Councillors.
