Further proof that a corner of Gunnersbury Park in Brentford will be sold off and replaced with luxury homes has come to light.
The proposals are contained in a leaked document discussed behind closed doors by councillors at a meeting of the Gunnersbury Park Regeneration Board (GPRB) on July 10.
"The only alternative to doing nothing is to offer part of the park for redevelopment," says the report.
"A significant acreage to the south of the park with a private access road should be given up to a small number of large high-spec houses - think Kensington Palace Gardens. Ideally no one would know they (the residents) were there."
The Chronicle revealed earlier this month how the board already considered proposals to turn the park's two listed mansions into a private school as member ssetruggle to fubnd ways to make up a £10million funding shortage.
Bela Cunha, who has lived beside the park for 20 years, is convinced this shady, tree-lined plot at the southern end of Lionel Road North is the only location to which the report could be referring.
"I'm sure this is the site councillors are thinking of selling but do they really think rich people want to live a stone's throw from the noisy M4 and in the catchment area for such poor primary schools?" she said. "I don't know how they thought they would be able to keep this secret when so many people are opposed to the idea.
The leaked report also describes plans to split the 186-acre site into formal parkland, a sports hub and a venue for community events, and says building work should begin by the end of 2009, with the 'new park' opening two years later.
A spokeswoman for Hounslow and Ealing councils denied plans to sell off any of the park, adding said the July 10 meeting was to develop an options appraisal that feed into a consultation and then masterplan for the site.
