Outline of points for supporters’ letters and e-mails

Thanks to all who have written in to Hounslow Council to date. But there is more to do now.

As you may know Brentford FC recently submitted (on 26th September) further information to Hounslow Council in response to their queries which were based on comments they had received from local objectors and statutory consultees.

This information comprised an Environmental Statement Addendum and included information relating to transport, noise, air quality, landscape and visual impact and ecology.  In addition the Applicant also submitted information, by way of clarification, to respond to other matters raised during the consultation period.

Points

• Views and nearby heritage assets – The results of this study confirmed that the proposed development is screened from view and the impact negligible. Three additional views viewpoints (the first from outside Temperate House in Kew Gardens and a further two from Kew Green) were commissioned and assessed.

• Additional traffic modelling – The scope of the Transport Assessment has been expanded to include an assessment of match day peak hours on a weekday evening in addition to weekend matches.  The additional modelling reinforces the original Transport Assessment’s conclusion that the impact of evening matches can be appropriately managed.

• Brentford FC Community Sports Trust  – An Addendum to the Community Benefits Statement has been submitted which further demonstrates the work that the Brentford Football Club Community Sports Trust does and the positive impact that the Trust has on the lives of many individuals across four West London boroughs: Hounslow, Ealing, Hillingdon and Richmond.

• Community contribution (section 106 agreement)- The Club is in discussion with the LB Hounslow to agree provision of a section 106 education contribution.
