On 14th Oct Hounslow’s Planning Committee refused the application from Northumberland Estates to redevelop the Park Road Allotments site. The Isleworth Society is proud to have been a part of the campaign to protect this local green space. It thanks the very many local residents and groups, as well as the regional and national organisations, who took the time to object to the Application.
