In July 2018, the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) announced it would be undertaking an electoral review of the London Borough of Hounslow.

Residents are invited to listen first-hand to the Boundary Commission’s presentation and ask any questions on the process of Hounslow’s review at its Public Meeting on Wednesday 14 November, from 6pm in the Blue zone at the Civic Centre, Lampton Road, Hounslow, TW3 4DN.

Anti-engine idling awareness

Following an anti-idle event at St Marys/William Hogarth schools a few months back, LBH will be holding the next event at Strand on the Green Schools at 2pm on Monday 8 October. The event will include educational sessions for the children at both the infant and junior school. The anti-idling event will follow these sessions, beginning around the school then heading towards Brentford High Street if time/people permit.

Feel free to come along, and let me know if you require any further information. Please see the event link below:

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.

Steam Packet Steps (again!)

The latest planning application for two residential houseboat moorings at Steam Packet Steps has been recommended for REFUSAL by LBH Planning. 95 objections represents just under 50% of SoGA’s membership.

Thank you for helping to kill off this unwanted and intrusive scheme.

ENGINE IDLING

You will have read in our last edition of Signals that SoGA is actively trying to highlight the issue of engine idling. The SoGA committee has been liaising with Ruth Cadbury MP, Bridget Osborne of the Chiswick Calendar, the Chiswick Riverside Councillors and Councillor Hanif Khan.

The Curve - update

The chiswickw4.com website has reported as follows:

curveThe importance of the views and the character of the listed buildings along Strand on the Green, which was perhaps the most important panoramic view from the south side of the river Thames was stressed at the Public Inquiry into the 32-storey Chiswick Curve this Tuesday (19 June).

Richard Griffith, chairman of Strand on the Green Residents [sic] Association (SoGA) said that poor quality developments could harm the integrity of the Conservation Area. He told the Inquiry, in its second week, at Brentford Free Church, that there were currently ambitious plans for schemes which included tall buildings and these would have an impact on the wider character of Chiswick and their effect on the Conservation Area should be considered.

The skyline of Strand on the Green was currently broken in on by the BSI Tower at Gunnersbury.
