Plans have been lodged to convert Trinity Square in Hounslow into flats. The application has been submitted under the prior approval scheme, meaning all flats will be private.
It also means the applicant only has to pay £80 for their application, and the council can only object on grounds on traffic, flood risk and on the basis of other dangers.
The site already benefits from planning for 228 flats from an application in 2015. The new application proposes 205 studio flats, and 27 one bed flats. Hounslow has been a popular location for office-to-residential conversions.
Many of the flats will have windows only onto an internal courtyard, that currently has a glazed ceiling. This isn’t unprecedented, a scheme from Galliard in the area also contained a similar layout.
The developer is Investream, the agent Brunel Planning and the architect Alan Camp Architects. The building is five storeys tall, and houses offices for GE Capital among others.
