Work is set to begin on a huge new housing development at Hounslow Civic Centre, with visitors warned of new parking arrangements.
Construction is due to begin in late June of the first 160 homes out of up to 940 to be built at the site in Lampton Road, Hounslow .
Hounslow Council 's headquarters will remain open during this first tranche of work, while a new civic centre is built at a car park in Bath Road, Hounslow.
Visitors' car park to move
But the visitors' car park will close from 5pm on Friday (June 24), and relocate to the nearby multi-storey car park from Monday (June 27), with a reduced number of spaces available.
Pedestrian access during the work will be via the bus stop near the multi-storey car park.
The public car park in Bath Road, opposite the Yates's pub, will close permanently at midnight on Sunday (June 26), to enable work to begin on the new civic centre.
Alternative parking is available in the Alexandra Road/Holloway Street, Bell Road, Treaty Centre and School Road car parks, with more details available on the council website .
New civic centre set to open in spring 2018
The council's new HQ is scheduled to open in spring 2018, enabling the demolition of the existing civic centre and the commencement of work on up to 780 more homes, planned for completion in 2022.
Council leader Steve Curran said the move would provide more affordable homes and a "fantastic" new civic centre, complete with a library, café and space for events and exhibitions in the "heart of Hounslow".
"It is an exciting time and puts Hounslow town centre on the map once again," he added.
Memorial plaques and benches in storage
The council said its existing offices were too costly to maintain and too large for the number of workers using them.
The council said a number of memorial plaques and benches in the grounds of the current civic centre had been removed and placed in storage.
Anyone wishing to have their plaque or bench returned has been asked to email Ann Mark firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8583 4110.
