To Hounslow Council
We The Undersigned:
write to you as a concerned local residents.
feel that the increasing number of Estate Agents in Turnham Green Terrace is adversely affecting the street, the area and the livelihoods of the remaining independent traders struggling to make a living in a tough climate.
believe that it is the responsibility of the council to protect the character and nature of this traditional shopping street, support independent traders and encourage a healthy mix of all trades in each shopping area for the benefit of all. Failure to take control of the 'Town Centres' will result, we believe, in a worse shopping experience for everybody. We would like to see the council take back control and help get our beloved towns back on their feet.
We call on Hounslow Council to make more responsible decisions when handling applications for change of use on Turnham Green Terrace and to respect the fact that granting ever more A2 (non-retail) usages threatens the character of a street that has been a traditional shopping parade for over a hundred years.
would like you to please use your powers to encourage a healthy mix of independent trades.

David Packham, United Kingdom2 years ago Comments: Could not agree more, the number of estate agents now on Turnham Green Terrace is absurd and makes it an increasingly uninteresting place to visit within Chiswick. Every independent shop owner on the terrace is deeply worried about the impact of reduced footfall, it is basic common sense to manage carefully the balance and mix of shops on any given street to ensure it maximises its appeal to shoppers. Only you the council have that power so please stop any more estate agents opening there, I can think of at least 7 which is just ridiculous when those shops could be put over to the sorts of more appealing shops that would draw people onto the street to the benefit of all the shops there as well as Chiswick itself.
