Hounslow Council has thrown its weight behind plans to bring the Gloriana back 'home' to Brentford, where it was built.
Richmond Council is consulting its residents about plans to give the royal barge a permanent home in Orleans Park, Twickenham, but the public response has so far been less than enthusiastic.
Brentford Chamber of Commerce this week launched a campaign to provide an alternative mooring for the boat in Brentford, with its preferred site being Brentford Lock.
A council spokesman today said: "We are more than happy to support the campaign to bring the Gloriana back to its rightful berth in Brentford. We will work with the Brentford Chamber of Commerce and all relevant authorities to help make this happen.
"The Gloriana's presence would be a great addition to Brentford’s successful regeneration and would act as a real pull in tourism terms."
Orleans Park is understood to be the preferred site of Lord Jeffrey Sterling, who funded the construction of the boat, which led the Queen's Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in 2012.
He has yet to respond to getwestlondon's enquiries about whether he would consider an alternative resting place for the royal vessel.
Should Twickenham residents reject the proposed Orleans Park mooring, the Gloriana's owners would have to look elsewhere.
