Hillingdon residents came together to petition against a new development of flats on a former pub site.
Preston Bennett property developers put forward plans for a "high quality residential scheme" to Hillingdon Council.
The development will see a 30-flat complex consisting of 12 one-bedroom apartments, 16 two-bedroom apartments and three three-bedroom apartments.
The council granted permission to demolish the Tommy Flynn's pub, which currently still stands on the site.
The pub, in Sutton Court Road, has been vacant for over 18 months after it's closure due to antisocial behaviour.
More than 260 residents, who live and work in the streets surrounding the proposed development, have now signed a petition to halt the current plans.
Amanda Mackenzie, a yoga teacher, who lives in Sutton Court Road with her partner and daughter, thinks developers have been too greedy with their proposal.
She said: “It's very overbearing, it's overlooking all the houses at the back and the front and even blocking sunlight.
“We're not opposing a redevelopment but their just being too greedy with this build it's just way way too big. They haven't shown the dwarfing of the houses and they haven't shown the congestion.”
Residents are concerned the development won't "harmonise" with the area, which is all double-storey housing.
'Like a cruise ship at night'
Ann Clifford, of Silver Way and a member of Oak Farm Residents' Association, is worried about the effects it will have on people in the area.
She said: “We have six schools and an awful lot of schoolchildren walking around. With traffic in the morning it's already a very busy area, so we just can't sustain a build like this.
“It will be like a cruise ship at night lit up. The balconies will look over every aspect so no one will have privacy.
"The antisocial behaviour is something to be considered and the drainage around here will not support it.”
Lara Wilshel, owner of Roses are Red florist, is concerned a lack of parking will effect her business.
She said: “The parking is atrocious as people double park on Sutton Court Road. If they were to build the flats, they haven't provided adequate parking so they would then park elsewhere.
“This means customers can't park, they can't buy anything, and shops shut down! It really is that simple.”
Residents aren't saying 'no' to a redevelopment of the site for housing, but say this plan just won't work within the area.
Paul Jenkins, planning associate at Preston Bennett, said: “The revised scheme has been substantially amended to deal with and reflect concerns raised by local residents and planning officers and is policy compliant in matters such as parking provision and amenity space.
"It would re-develop a vacant, brownfield site to provide much needed additional first time buyer and family housing for which there is a chronic shortage within London and Hillingdon.”
The application is currently still undecided.
Anyone who wishes to object to the proposed development can write to Hillingdon Council, quoting reference 8396/APP/2014/4118, at London Borough of Hillingdon Planning Department, Civic Centre, High Street, Uxbridge UB8 1UW.
