A planning application submitted by English Heritage to Hounslow Council to enable a range of improvements to be made to Chiswick House Gardens has been approved by Hounslow’s Sustainable Development Committee.

The application was made back in August on behalf of the Chiswick House and Gardens Trust as part of the overall plan to regenerate this internationally famous site.

Commenting on the planning decision, Martin Clayton, Project Director for the regeneration scheme said: ‘We are absolutely delighted that this application has been successful.  A huge amount of work went into drawing up the proposals for regenerating the gardens by the Chiswick House and Gardens Trust, with a great deal of invaluable input from a range of groups and local people.  All this hard work has finally paid off.

“We now just await a decision from the Heritage Lottery Fund on whether our Stage 2 bid for funding has been successful.  This will be announced at the end of January and providing we get the grant, work could start on site as early as spring 2008.”
