New Brentford canalside development gets detailed planning permission

Detailed plans have been submitted for the first phase of the new Brentford Lock West development bordering Brentford Gauging Lock, where the Grand Union Canal meets the Thames. 

Isis Waterside Regeneration has already secured outline planning consent on the scheme, which will eventually build over 500 residential units on the site of the old overhanging warehouses off Commerce Road. 
The plans include upgrading and opening up the towpath, maximising water frontage and retaining the popular visitor moorings. The developers want to create a mixed waterside community with residential, commercial and leisure space. Community uses have also been incorporated into the plan, including space for the local canoe club, EDGE, in association with Brentford FC Community Sports Trust.
Work is expected to begin in winter 2012 on this first phase, a mix of 150 apartments and townhouses, together with commercial units in retained buildings.  

ISIS, part-owned by British Waterways to develop its waterside property portfolio, submitted an application to redevelop the site in November 2010. The designs have received commendation from the Sustainable Development Committee at Hounslow Borough Council and gained an Urban Design Award earlier this year.
