Chiswick Curve tall building inquiry closes

DATE: 06 Jul 2018

The planning inquiry into a proposal for a 109m tall, 32 storey tower located at Chiswick Roundabout – known as “the Chiswick Curve” has closed today.

The proposal was refused planning permission by the London Borough of Hounslow in February 2017 for a number of reasons including harm to a range of designated heritage assets among them the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew World Heritage Site.

The appeal has been recovered by the Secretary of State and the inquiry has sat for the last 4 weeks.

Rule 6 parties include Historic England and the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.
