Two car parks in Hounslow have permanently closed to make way for a major new development in the High Street.
Work on the Hounslow High Street Quarter development has now begun, with residents set to benefit from a number of new facilities once the project is complete, including more than 200 affordable homes, plus shops, restaurants and a multi-screen cinema.
More pressing matters are on the minds of our readers however, as anger has arisen as to where locals are expected to park in the meantime.
Reacting to our article on Facebook, a number of our getwestlondon followers expressed their frustration.
Facebook user Amjad Raja commented: "Parking will still be a major problem because the areas you mention are small car park spaces and means a lot of people will have a long walk from time ticket runs out which will incur a penalty."
Shahbano Pasha said: "Not to mention the other car parks that have closed too (at the junction of Bath Road and Lampton Road and also school road).
"Where on earth are we supposed to park? The other car parks will simply not be able to cope."
Yvonne Corke-Stevens simply commented "Ridiculous".
Hounslow Council has assured that disruption will be minimal, deputy leader Councillor Amrit Mann saying: "Residents can continue to use and park at our town centres as normal."
Those wishing to drive to the centre of Hounslow can park at a number of different locations including at the Treaty Centre and Blenheim Centre.
The following car parks are also an option:
- Bell Road
- Civic Centre
- Kingsley Road (Hounslow East)
- Montague Road East
- Montague Road West
- Prince Regent Road South
- Sunrize Plaza car park
Cllr Mann added: "The regeneration in our borough is continuing to gather pace and we are all excited at the new developments.
"These are part of our commitments we have made to build and provide more good quality homes, including affordable homes and support economic growth and improve our town centres."

The Hounslow Quarter project is expected to be complete by 2020 when new parking will be provided on the site.
