Deafening cheers replaced the roaring of dirt bikes around the Bedfont Pits site this week as residents were told that the proposed development has cleared its final planning hurdle.
The troubled site has caused endless misery for residents and was, until last summer, used by crowds of noisy dirt bikers who used it for their regular illegal races.
Ann Towers, who has lived in Westmacott Drive for 15 years, said: "I'm absolutely over the moon. I love living here but I've seen lots of families driven away by the noise and bikes over the years. Thank God we could finally get a permanent solution here, everyone will be delighted."
Two years ago developers Chrisfys launched a bid to completely overhaul the site, which is technically considered Green Belt land, in exchange for permission to redevelop and update the trading estate area.
They faced numerous hurdles getting the plans through the council planning department only to be told last January that the final decision to approve it was being 'called in' for a public inquiry by the Secretary of State.
But this week the Government added its seal of approval to the scheme, which had been given popular support by hundreds of local residents, schoolchildren and councillors.
William Woodward-Fisher, director of Chrisfys Properties Ltd, said: "We've never understood how anyone could object to a project which was clearly a win-win for all concerned and would transform a neglected waste-land, which has been an eyesore for years, into something which could be enjoyed by the whole community.
"However, I'm delighted that we have finally got there and I would like to thank MP Alan Keen for all his support as well as the hundreds of local residents and councillors who made the effort to write and attend the public inquiry."
The proposals include the redevelopment of the industrial and storage buildings currently on the estate as well as landscaping of the adjoining 50 acre site, for the use of the local community.
After hearing the evidence, the inquiry inspector agreed with the campaigners that on this occasion the benefits of the development 'clearly outweighed the harm', particularly as the proposals included landscaping, nature conservation and outdoor recreation areas.
Chrisfys is currently in negotiations with a new occupier for part of the trading estate and hopes to proceed with the development next year, once these have been completed.
Feltham West councillor Barbara Harris said: "This is a victory for residents as they're the ones who have attended every meeting and written letters of support. They have pushed this project forward."
