72 Harefield Rd Giant Dwelling Development - 25767/APP/2023/2805

We the undersigned petition Hillingdon Council to Refuse outright the planning application, reference number: 25767/APP/2023/2805 (72 Harefield Road, Uxbridge), and retain the existing building and garden as is. It is the wrong development for this particular site because it is too large, too cramped, too close to other properties, its effect on the properties around it, particularly at the back and the undeniable detrimental effect on traffic congestion, road safety and pollution.

We object to this development for the following reasons:

Congestion and effect of traffic on Harefield Road:
Exacerbates the already very congested local traffic:
Harefield Road has on-road parking that makes it already difficult to navigate and prone to congestion. The direct increase of 8 vehicles would cause significant disruption, especially during the morning and evening rush hours and during the school runs.

In addition, this will cause higher risk to pedestrians, walking past the building during construction, particularly children walking to and from the nearby schools and after the construction there will be increased traffic going in and out of the property.

The entrance to the site is in between three junctions. It is also one of, if not, the narrowest parts of the road. The section is already made difficult as cars have to pull onto the other side of the road to pass parked cars. The junction of Fairfield Road and Harefield Road is dangerous.

On reaching 20 signatures it may be considered in conjunction with the relevant live planning application at an upcoming Committee meeting. The Council's Democratic Services Team will be in touch with the lead petitioner to advise and take this petition forward accordingly.

This ePetition ran from 21/10/2023 to 15/11/2023 and has now finished.
