Meet the builders behind the Reynard Mills redevelopment plans in Brentford next week.

Residents living in the area are asked to come along on Tuesday (December 6) to find out more about the much-delayed project being delivered by developers Hill along with Notting Hill Housing Trust.

It was fourth time lucky for the proposals approved by Hounslow council which include building 195 homes and a nursery on the former BBC site on the border of Ealing and Hounslow .

Of the homes, 63% will be available under shared ownership or affordable rent.

The latest plans were given the green light in 2014.

The long-running saga includes three failed applications since 2011 - all for a different number of flats which were either withdrawn or refused.

In addition to the plans, there are training opportunities available with Notting Hill Housing's Construction Training Initiative (CTI).

The drop-in event will also have more information on the schemes.

What Reynard Mills development is set to look like

When the plans were approved in October 2014, in a major endorsement for community relations, the chairman of Hounslow Council’s planning committee, councillor Bob Whatley, was quick to praise developer Notting Hill Housing for how it went about pitching the project to local residents.

Mr Whatley told the meeting he had been impressed with how the housing association had consulted and engaged with local residents and had produced a scheme which made a lot of sense.

Roger Arkell, senior planning manager at Notting Hill Housing, speaking at the time of the decision, said: “Community engagement is how we always approach our projects because we are a responsible developer and it would be crazy not to.

“We value the knowledge and opinions of local people and while we know we can’t meet everyone’s wishes, we always aim to adjust our plans wherever possible.
