Controversial plans to turn warehouses into a bakery have been approved by councillors - to the dismay of nearby residents.
Neighbours from roads surrounding the site in Fairway Drive, Greenford are worried about the smell, noise and extra traffic the factory will produce and submitted a petition to the town hall.
But bosses at Polish Village Bread Ltd say the plan is to relocate their current factory at Long Drive, about 200 metres from the proposed site, and residents will not notice any difference.
Greenford Green councillor Jason Stacey disagrees: "I think the residents, along with the ward councillors, are very disappointed with the planning commit-tee's decision. The major concern of the residents is the 24/7 nature of the bakery. Most of the time the bread is going to be made during the night, and residents are concerned they could be sleeping with the constant smell of the bakery invading their lives.
"The issue about deliveries hasn't been properly addressed; it's not about the delivery of raw materials. Bread has to get delivered to the shops early in the mornings before they open. The Polish Village Bread use smaller vans which can get through the width restriction at Long Drive, so they could be using residential streets."
The committee's sanction on Wednesday last week came with conditions which include planning to cut employee traffic, no deliveries in or out between 8pm and 5am and a restriction on the hours forklift trucks can be used.
Polish Village Bread Ltd manager Piotr Barski said the company would ensure residents were not disturbed.
He said: "We will be using specialist equipment to reduce the odour and all our machinery will be inside the building keeping noise at an acceptable level.
"We will be receiving deliveries of flour by lorry once or twice a week but we will only be using forklifts during normal working hours. We will load up our delivery vans by hand and have always used Long Drive and Hill Rise, so this won't be a change for residents."
