Character and Design Study: Engagement Workshop 1- Character Areas and Opportunities

Closed 3 Mar 2021

Opened 17 Feb 2021


We are preparing  an update to our 2014 Urban Context and Character Study, which includes proposing Design Codes for the borough. This updated study will play a crucial role in shaping future development to ensure that it is of high quality design and responds positively to our borough’s character. It is proposed that the Character Study will be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document and will be formally consulted on in Spring 2021. 

Responses to our “Tell us about your Neighbourhood” Commonplace survey in January- February 2021  helped us to better define character area boundaries and told us about the characteristics of neighbourhoods.

We are now holding a workshop to discuss amendments on the character areas based on feedback and to help us define opportunities to improve these character areas.

We would like you to join us at our stakeholder workshop on: 

Wednesday 3rd March, 6-7:30pm 

The workshop will be run by Hounslow Spatial Planning Officers and our Consultants, Allies and Morrison (who are town planners and urban designers). 

There will be a short presentation, followed by further discussion in area specific breakout groups. During the event, you will be able to select which area specific breakout group you would like to give your thoughts at. The area breakout groups will be split into:

  • Bedfont, Feltham, Hanworth
  • Central Hounslow
  • Hounslow West, Heston and Cranford
  • Isleworth and Osterley
  • Chiswick and Brentford

If you would like to give feedback for more than one area, you could send a representative to another area breakout group. Alternatively, we will record the event and upload it to the website, which you can re-watch and send any feedback in writing to Officers after the event. 

Please click on the link below to register. After registering, please select which area you would like to discuss. 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Please note: this event will be recorded.

Please let us know if you plan to attend by Friday 26th February so we can understand the number of attendees.
