The expected decision on the planning application to regenerate the south of Brentford High Street has been delayed until next year.
Developer Ballymore has decided to delay their application to allow them to carry out further work on the transport impacts of the proposals. It is also thought that they may be encouraged by an improving market to alter the scheme, perhaps adding more new homes.
Cllr Steve Curran, cabinet member for regeneration at the council, said: “We are all keen to see the regeneration of the town and whilst it’s disappointing to see the delay, it’s also encouraging that Ballymore are prepared to take a little more time to get all details of the scheme right from day one.
“This … will mean the developers can make sure they are putting together the best proposals they can in an improving market. It also means that we can continue to discuss the phasing of affordable housing within the scheme which will be of benefit to the local community.”
Elsewhere in Brentford, the application by Brentford Football Club for a new stadium on Lionel Road will be decided on December 5.
