VICTORY! Student bedsit plan abandoned

VICTORY! Student bedsit plan abandoned
Bermuda House and Brentham House

We have just heard that the plan to convert offices on our High Street into dozens of student bedsits has been ABANDONED.

The plan, which was submitted to the council just over a year ago, would have seen a disproportionate number of temporary student dwellings dominate the centre of the village. Click here to read our December 2011 report on the plan.

The HWA objected strongly to the plans and helped raise awareness amongst local residents, of whom more than a hundred wrote to the council to object.

Our local councillors also objected and Cllr Tony Arbour has now emailed us to say: “You will be pleased to learn that the application has been abandoned.”

This is a great result for Hampton Wick. Hopefully the buildings will soon either be back in business as offices, or will receive a more sensible redevelopment/re-use proposal.
