Plans have recently been resubmitted to build the biggest park in west London for 100 years.
Those involved in the project aim to build a park on the surface of disused land and extract gravel from below the surface to make way for warehouses.
But what else do we know about this giant park?
- The park will be 110 acres, making it the largest open space in London for over 100 years.
- The project will create between 1,870 to 2,540 jobs.
- Three million tonnes of gravel will be extracted from underground.
What will the park be used for?
The surface of the park would be landscaped and used as a recreational space for sport and leisure activities.
Proposals detail plans for:
- Walking trails and cycling tracks
- Children's play area
- Football, cricket and tennis facilities
- A running track
- An outdoor amphitheatre and concert pavilion
Underneath the park, warehouses will be built for storage.
The process will include the extraction of three million tonnes of gravel from beneath the surface which will be used on the site to construct the underground warehouse spaces.
A proportion of the gravel will also be distributed for use at other construction sites.
Why was it rejected first time round and what is different now?
The initial proposal was submitted in March 2013 and refused in April 2015 on the grounds that it was an unsuitable development of green belt land.
The council blamed potential archaeological issues.
The project now claims to have addressed these issues, and in response to archaeological issues raised by the council, a spokesman for developers, Formal Investments, said "trial pits have been dug" and "nothing significant has been found".
A proposal for warehouse space for storage has been generated alongside plans to address concerns over vehicle access and carbon dioxide pollution.
The company said it can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 60% in comparison to the previous plans, by installing ground source heat pumps to provide energy for heating and cooling in the underground warehouse spaces.
Does it have support?
The project has been running a consultation process with those in the local community and others including the Council's Heston and Cranford Area Forum, local councillors and the Greater London Authority.
A public questionnaire which generated 664 responses found:
- 97.5 % of local residents said they were in favour of the proposals.
- 96.6% believe that the area needs a new park.
- 95.8% approve of the employment the project will bring to the area.
- 96.4% approve or strongly approve of the improved pathways linking communities.
If approved, when will the park be in use?
It could be a while before we hear the outcome. The first time around it took two years for the council to consider the plans.
The second attempted proposal was submitted this month and developers say some areas of the park will be available for use within 12 months of work commencing on the site.
The developer has said: "From day one a secure perimeter fence, newly planted trees and hedges, park benches, litter bins and new paths connecting the surrounding communities will help create a safe, clean and enjoyable environment."
The extraction of the gravel below will take longer, the project estimate around seven to 10 years.
