LB Hillingdon will object to the planned Slough Intermodal Freight Exchange, planned for land just outside the Borough.
The large industrial scheme, submitted to Slough Council by Goodman, would occupy 180 acres just over the M25 from Harmondsworth next to the Colnbrook bypass. A previous application for a similar scheme – at that time called the London International Freight Exchange – was refused in 1999 and on appeal in 2002.
Jean Palmer, LB Hillingdon’s director of planning, environment and community services, told the Uxbridge Gazette: “Officers are recommending the planning committee object to this application in Slough because if it goes ahead it could have a significant adverse impact on Hillingdon. This could include noise problems, loss of air quality and traffic congestion on our roads.”
