If any site in Chiswick is suitable for higher density design it is this one - so close to the underground and other facilities.

That part of the Turnham Green Conservation area is of extremely poor design and street presence and the external facade of the office building is a blot on the landscape.

So from my point of view development on that part of the site is welcome, and I think the response of the architects is a good one - and one that I personally (as an architect and chiswick resident) do not think will cause any harm to the Conservation area and by nature of the proposed street frontage will enhance it.

I am no apologist for developers - but I DO understand that to build and sell dwelling spaces costs money and, of course, that developers have to make money - all our employers have to make money - that is how they pay us!

The area that I feel could be improved is the section of 'townhouses' as these back onto a delivery/service area and, although fitted with tripple glazing there will be some poor outlook and acoustic issues, but LBH have asked for this housing mix.

The public realm treatment is to be welcomed - generally Chiswick has extremely poor public realm - it would be nice for benches and other features to allow a quick sandwich perch.

I think that the 7 stories is reasonable in the area and the view from TG will not be damaged - we are in the middle of a housing shortage and this seems to me to be a good place to put smaller multiple units.

So I am one of those that generally gave a positive response - I have worked with the developer before as a consultant and with the architects - and this gives me an inside understanding (some may say bias) as to how they approach their developments.

My professional life is spent weighing these kinds of things up, and as a Chiswick resident I think that this is the next wave in the continuous change and development of an extremely attractive place to live - and in keeping with all the waves of change that have turned Chiswick from an orchard into a thriving suburb of London.
