Hillingdon Gateway – Invitation to Neighbour Workshop 25th May 2017

Meyer Homes owns the Former Master Brewer site off Freezeland Way, Hillingdon (which we are now referring to as Hillingdon Gateway). As you are no doubt aware, this site has long been the subject of development proposals including the scheme which was approved in 2014 for a new Tesco Store, retail units, hotel and 125 new homes. Since purchasing the site from Tesco/Spenhill in 2015, Meyer Homes has been considering the most appropriate approach to the site in the context of the increasing need for new homes in Hillingdon and across the capital.

Given the site’s history and importance, we recognise that any plans for the site may be of significant interest to local people and we appreciate that you may have a specific perspective and a particular interest in what happens here. For that reason, we are keen to talk to you as a nearest neighbour, to understand your views on our emerging plans for the site and wanted to invite you to a neighbour workshop to discuss our initial thoughts.

We believe it is important to provide you with the opportunity to inform our proposals alongside the work we have been undertaking with the London Borough of Hillingdon, in order for us to consider your input as we continue to pull together the plans for the site.

Hillingdon Park Baptist Church, 25 Hercies Road, Uxbridge UB10 9LS

Thursday 25th May 2017 from 7.00pm – 9.00pm

To help us make sure the event is as useful as possible for all of us, we would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance by email at hillingdongateway@glhearn.com or by phone on 0344 225 0003. You can also use these contact details to talk to a member of the project team to ask any questions you may have.

Yours sincerely

For and on behalf of Meyer Homes

Chairman’s review of 2015-6

As part of the AGM, the Chairman reviews the Association’s activities during the preceding year. She also does a lot of other things like calling for votes on this and that and introducing the guest speakers. While much of this has to await the members’ approval next year, we thought it would be a good idea to see the body of her presentation here.

Result! (Ickenham plan)

Much more to come, no doubt, from Ickenham Plan but about 100 people attended the debut meeting today at the Village Hall. At the end they decided that it would be a good idea to create a Neighbourhood Plan to help preserve and improve Ickenham as a wonderful place to live.

Well done Ickenham Residents’ Association Committee member, Chris Mountain, for his hard work today, at the festive evening and on many occasions in between to start the ball rolling.

The intention is for the Neighbourhood Plan to have its own organisers, independent of the Ickenham Residents’ Association, although some Committee members might want to join in as private individuals. The truth is that the Committee has plenty on its plate already and might not be able to give the new plan the attention it clearly deserves.
