Barratt London have acquired planning permission for their proposed development of Hounslow's High Street Quarter. The scheme is comprised of a 27 storey tower, shops, a 10 screen cinema and over 500 new residential units.
There were many objections from local residents concerning loss of daylight/sunlight and overshadowing due to the fact that losses of over 40% to the VSC were recorded. The site is currently a large open car park and therefore large percentage losses were recorded due to the already existing high daylight and sunlight values. Arguments were based on retained values and the uncharacteristic open site within the city centre (just off the high street).
