Hillingdon Planning Committee has approved the replacement of Yiewsley Library and pool with a mixed-use development including 95 homes.
The proposal faced a severe amount of opposition from residents and local councillors. The council-owned scheme is for the demolition of the existing Yiewsley Library Building, the erection of a new residential building on the Yiewsley Library site (Falling Lane), and the erection of a new mixed-use building on the former Yiewsley Swimming Pool site (Otterfield Road), with a replacement library at ground floor level, residential uses above and further pedestrian access off of the High Street.
In detail, the proposal includes the demolition of the existing Yiewsley Library Building and the erection of a five-storey residential building comprising 50 dwellings, with 28 undercroft parking spaces (13 for residential and 15 for use by Rabbsfarm Primary School). The Otterfield Road site proposes erecting a five-storey building comprising 45 dwellings, with 25 car parking spaces (23 for residential and two for library users).
The council acquired brownfield land for the development in August, which is covered here.
The architects are Hunters, Space One Deacon Road Hammersmith, who acted as agents on behalf of Hillingdon Council.
