Hounslow Council is working with the public engagement consultants, Commonplace, to collecting views from the local residents to on the future of Brentford, sharing their knowledge and ideas to map out the town centre’s threats and opportunities, and what a vision for its long term future might look like.
The meeting point of River Thames and the Grand Union Canal provides a unique historical and environmental setting to the town centre. Brentford High Street, an ancient Roman Road, is formed by a number of shopping parades. Watermans, two nearby museums, Brentford Football Club’s new Community Stadium and the Sunday food market held at the Market Place strengthen the local cultural offer.
The Great West Corridor, hosting an array of multinational businesses, is ten minutes away on foot and forms (with the town centre) part of Hounslow’s Creative Enterprise Zone – celebrating and supporting the area’s creative community. Ballymore’s development on the south side of the High Street is under construction to provide 892 new homes, retail, leisure, business and community floorspace. The scheme will highlight the waterways heritage while bringing a much-needed boost to Brentford.
The consultation closes on the 18th October 2020 and can be seen here:
