The problem with brownfield land in London is, in general, it doesn't have good transport connections.  Without decent transport, there is a risk of creating places where people can't easily travel to jobs or become reliant on cars.  Of course, creating brand new transport infrastructure is hugely expensive and there are invariably lots of objections.

I've skimmed the London 2050 Infrastructure plan and the focus is on increasing the population density of existing town centres rather than brownfield schemes.  It would be naive to think that Chiswick will be immune from this.

The population of London now is still less than it was in the 1950s so a lot dwellings that would have been family accommodation back then now have just singles or couples in them.
