Current Projects

We have six groups who work across the following issues – Planning, Green and Environment, Conservation and Heritage, Transport and Streets, Town Centre, and Brentford Vison. We meet regularly to identify issues which affect Brentford and our community, then create projects and formalise action plans all of which are aimed at improving where we live and work, AND reinforce our mantra of “People who do something”.

Click on the links below to find out about some of our current projects and events which we hope will provide a flavour of what we believe will help to improve not only our environment, but also help provide a stronger identity and in turn a sense of place and community for the benefit of everyone.

If you think, or know of, any projects which we may be able to help with do please get in touch at
info@brentfordvoice.co.uk.

We would love to hear from you!

Borough Character and Design Study Supplementary Planning Document

The title of this document is a bit of a mouthful. It proposes a set of geographical “character areas”, and goes on to propose area-based recommendations to guide the transformation, enhancement and conservation of each of the character areas. Draft “design codes” seek to ensure the delivery of the area-based recommendations and “high quality and characterful design in development”.

A consultation takes place between Monday 4th April and Friday 13th May 2022.

A Vision for Brentford Town Centre
The London Borough of Hounslow have prepared a Vision for Brentford, which incorporates several suggestions from Brentford Voice. The Vision sets out the Council’s approach to the regeneration and economic growth of our town centre. On 11 January 2022 Hounslow Cabinet approved a Vision for Brentford Town Centre. The full version can be read here.

Estimates of Dwelling Stock
This table provides dwelling stock estimates for the wards of Brentford and Syon from 2001 to 2036.

Maps of Housing Sites
These maps show the location of major housing sites which may come forward during the period 2021 to 2036. Some of these sites may not be developed, but some may be developed at higher densities than we have assumed while other sites (“windfall” sites and small sites) will certainly come forward. These maps should be read in conjunction with the List of Housing Sites at September 2021.

Brentford Canal Festival 2022
Brentford is undergoing huge change currently and whilst welcome it’s important to acknowledge its past, and what better way than celebrating what was the life blood of Brentford for many years – its waterways. We hope to create a great occasion for local business and the cultural community to showcase their offerings in the context of a town which will be transformed in the coming years to a destination where people will take time to walk around – not just pass through.

Bringing Brentford’s disused railway embankment back into use
We will seek funds from LB Hounslow to provide public access to the embankment. The views from the embankment over Brentford and beyond are stunning.

A bridge from The Ham to Syon Park
This is not a new idea! A bridge was in place in the 17th century and probably much earlier.

Brentford Waterside Heritage Trail
We know that the waterside is the single most important “cultural cornerstone” for our community.

Brentford Gate Bridge
This project would transform Brentford’s waterside, improve connection to and from the Kew side of the Thames, and provide economic benefits to Brentford.

Bringing the Brentford Fountain home
We know that this project has very widespread support from our community and we are determined to carry the project to a successful conclusion.

St. Lawrence’s Church and burial grounds
This is a key site for the community and for the future of Brentford. We will strive to achieve the best possible outcome.

A Vision For Brentford
In this Vison we have addressed the key issues as we see them but we have added context which we hope supports those views. Clearly this is our Vision, but as mentioned previously if we are to turn a vision into a reality it requires a collective collaboration with input from all.
