Having lived in Whitton for two years now, what it really needs are more trees, the hanging flower baskets off lightposts (which seemed to disappear) and a Costa Coffee or Café Nero.
Many shops around Iceland have shut down. The bakery is not particularly good and standard and the pound shop's really gotta go!
Sainsbury's would have been good, perhaps Tesco should move in where Sainsbury's was to be so it can offer an expanded range as it seems too tight where it is.
More trees and potted planted areas would help around the Barclays bank end on both sides of the streets as it seems bare and empty.
I would like to offer more suggestions as you need to keep people on there so they spend and browse more, otherwise Richmond, Chiswick, Kingston and Teddington will steal the patrons.
