Notting Hill have resubmitted plans for flats in Hayes, but have met opposition.
The second application for the site n the Hayes Village conservation area from Notting Hill Home Ownership for 47 flats on 505-509 Uxbridge Road and 89-91 Grange Road, Hayes follows a refusal for a 70 flat scheme last year, partly on the grounds it would have been out-of-keeping with the conservation area.
The Uxbridge Gazettereports that Townfield councillor, Lynne Allen, opposes the development. She told the Gazette: “Although I recognise the need for homes, I have to balance that with the need for people to have employment. My argument has always been that land is for business and if you start taking away that land you are stripping away employment.”
