I have just heard from Brentford councillor Ruth Cadbury that the Reynard Mills developers wil be sent packing. She says:
On Thursday I met our senior planning officer. Many residents of north Brentford will be pleased to know that the applicants will be asked to withdraw their application, on the basis that it represents significant overdevelopment on the site. If they insist on pursuing it they would be refused planning permission by officers under their delegated powers. This means that it won’t be coming to the planning committee.
We would expect that if they want to redevelop the site they would return with a much reduced scheme, with much less impact on the local area.
This issue has given us one of the biggest “post-bags” we have had on a local issue for a very long time, so I hope people can rest assured that whatever happens on that site, we will ensure that it is in scale and keeping with the local area.
