Hello from W12!

February 6, 2010

We are the Ashchurch Residents Association  and we represent residents living in Ashchurch Park Villas, Ashchurch Terrace, Ashchurch Grove and Goldhawk Road.

Our main concern right now is the planned development  by Places for People at 282 Goldhawk Road. The 66 unit overdevelopment of the old care home site will mean the loss of many beautiful trees. Hammersmith and Fulham councillors voted the development through in December despite our oppostion and the protests of other local amenity groups.

We have now asked the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to call in the development. We await his reply, probably in Feb 2010.

We want to keep a real rumble going about our opposition to the development as well as others in the area. We have also created a Facebook page called HAMMERSMITH GRAPEVINE where you and any Hammersmith resident can comment on the 282 Goldhawk Road or other developments like the Goldhawk Road Industrial Estate.
