LIONEL ROAD PLANNING UPDATE

20 October 2013

Hounslow Council ask for more comments on Stadium project

In the match day programme from yesterday's Sky Bet League One match against Colchester United, the Lionel Road Project Team gave readers some more information about the scheme.
Those who did not pick up a copy can read it below.

The Lionel Road Project Team would like to thank all who have written or emailed to Hounslow Council in support of Brentford Football Club’s planning application for the new community stadium and residential development at Lionel Road South. 
Whether or not a letter or email has already been written, there is now a further opportunity to register your support, PLEASE DO SO
Those who did write should have received a letter from the Council in the last 10 days, informing you that the Club has submitted some additional information on the project. 
That information was requested by the Council, and it follows on from the consultation exercise that the Council undertook in June and July of this year after the planning application had been submitted.
Brian Burgess, co-Director of the Lionel Road Development Project for Brentford FC, said: “Our experienced team of consultants believes this additional information demonstrates that the impacts of the project on areas of concern to local groups, including transport and education, Kew Gardens and other heritage assets, will be limited and manageable. 
"Given the comments made at recent public meetings we have attended in Chiswick and Kew, we urge all fans and residents to consider this new material and send your views to the Planning Officer as soon as possible.” 
What you can do now
Now further information has been submitted, the Club encourages you to contact Hounslow Council to emphasise your support and to give us the best chance of moving to Lionel Road South. 
It would be great if your comments could (in your own words) focus on the points we set out below: 
• Weekday evening traffic modelling – The scope of the Transport Assessment has been expanded to include an assessment of match day peak hours on a weekday evening in addition to weekend matches. The additional modelling reinforces the original Transport Assessment’s conclusion that the impact of evening matches can be appropriately managed. 
• Parking Surveys - The results of surveys undertaken earlier this season demonstrate there is adequate on and off street parking capacity for supporters. The Club remains committed to monitoring and reviewing the level of parking through the Travel Plan and Local Area Management Plan. 7
• Green Initiatives - The Club has investigated further sustainability measures and is committed to collecting rainwater from the stadium roof for irrigating the pitch. Furthermore, additional carbon reductions are now proposed to ensure the Stadium meets a 25 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions. 
• Brentford FC Community Sports Trust - An Addendum to the Community Benefits Statement has been submitted which further demonstrates the charitable work that the Brentford Football FC Community Sports Trust does and the positive impact that the Trust has on the lives of many individuals across the London Boroughs of Hounslow, Ealing and Richmond.
