Dear Planning Office,

 

Re: Applications ref. P/2020/3099 and P/2020/3100

 

I, the undersigned, would like to object to the above applications for the following reasons:

Objection points                                  Homebase / Syon Gardens                      Tesco (Osterley Place)

                                                                  P/2020/3099                                                 P/2020/3100

  • Traffic












     

  • Car Parking



     

  • Other Infrastructure







     

  • Education

  • Environmental Impact & Sustainability





     

  • Consultation/ Community Involvement








     

  • Height/Massing/ Density/ Overdevelopment






     

  • Overlooking/ Overshadowing/ Daylight/Sunlight/ Solar Glare







     

  • Out of Character with the Area

Need not met by proposed 42% of flats being 1-bed, 44% 2-bed, only 13% 3-bed and 1% 4+ bedroom.

 

 

Grade II listed Gillette building will be dwarfed by buildings up to 17 storeys.

Public transport in the area already stretched. The only likely improvement is another bus route (E1 to Ealing). No funding available for the proposed Southall Rail Link or West London Orbital Link, or improvements to Hounslow Loop or Piccadilly line.

Developer claims that traffic will reduce in the area! Where is the evidence? NB Nishkam School traffic forecasts hugely underestimated reality, and this looks like a similar case.Gillette Corner traffic is above capacity, needs drastic reconfiguring, not just an extra right-hand turn from eastbound A4 to Syon Lane southbound. Shoppers might use taxis rather than their own cars or home delivery (more vans).

 

 

Number of residential car parking spaces totally inadequate (100 for 473 flats).

 

 

We asked for a GP surgery, public swimming pool – not provided. Local infrastructure bursting at the seams, how will it serve an extra 1,100-1,500 residents? So, a negative impact on social infrastructure.

 

 

Secondary provision maybe adequate, but primary provision highly likely to be insufficient.

 

 

Mainly provided on podium and roof levels, not at ground level. Not enough for the extra 1,000-1,250 residents.

 

 

Increased noise, air pollution, carbon emissions (including during 5-year construction period) and poor sustainability. Climate emergency declared but homes won’t be zero-carbon.

 

 

Consultation with the local community was a box-ticking exercise, a sham. We were concerned with height (our red-line is 6-storeys, the height of the Access Storage building currently under construction at Gillette Corner) and transport/traffic – these major concerns have been largely ignored.

 

 

Too high in relation to existing residential area (mainly 2-storey), and much taller than existing commercial buildings on the A4 nearby. Density (homes/hectare) 15 times higher than the rest of Osterley & Spring Grove ward.

 

 

The proposed tall buildings will tower above local homes, dominating them and some will lose privacy, daylight & sunlight eg Northumberland Gardens, Brambles Close. Solar glare for car and bus drivers along A4, Syon Lane, Northumberland Gardens, also train drivers on Hounslow Loop.

 

 

Design, appearance and materials are not fitting with the local area of mainly 2-storey houses. Negative impact on context and character of the area.

Need not met by proposed 46% of flats being studio or 1-bed, 45% 2-bed, only 9% 3-bedroom.

 

 

Grade II listed Gillette building will be dwarfed by buildings up to 17 storeys.

 

 

Public transport in the area already stretched. The only likely improvement is another bus route (E1 to Ealing). No funding available for the proposed Southall Rail Link or West London Orbital Link, or improvements to Hounslow Loop or Piccadilly line.

 

 

Developer claims that traffic will reduce in the area! Where is the evidence? NB Nishkam School traffic forecasts hugely underestimated reality, and this looks like a similar case. Petrol station customers will use the Shell Garage at Gillette Corner, so they won’t disappear as suggested by the developer.

 

 

 

 

 

Number of residential car parking spaces totally inadequate (400 for 1677 homes).

 

 

GP surgery suggested at this site, but it needs to be on the Homebase site because of availability of better public transport and car parking. Local infrastructure bursting at the seams, how will it serve an extra 3.6-5.2K residents? So, a negative impact on social infrastructure.

 

Secondary provision maybe adequate, but primary provision highly likely to be insufficient.

 

 

Mainly provided on podium and roof levels, not at ground level. Not enough for the extra 1,000-1,250 residents.

Too high in relation to existing residential area (mainly 2-storey), and much taller than buildings on the Sky Campus nearby. Density (homes/hectare) 20 times higher than the rest of Osterley & Spring Grove ward.

 

 

The proposed tall buildings will tower above local homes, dominating them and some will lose privacy, daylight & sunlight eg Oaklands Avenue, Syon Lane, possibly Syon Park Gardens.
