Petition against planning application no. 77460/APP/2022/2480 - Proposed development at Chestnut Ave junction with Pinner Rd, Northwood, due impact on traffic and parking pressures

We the undersigned petition Hillingdon Council to Reject the planning application due to its likely impact of increasing demand for parking and resultant traffic congestion in the immediate area. If not rejected, we ask that the Council consider approval subject to a reduction in dwellings, an increase in allocated parking spaces, a stipulation on the type of commercial business permitted and an improvement to parking restrictions.

The junction of Chestnut Avenue and Pinner Road is a busy area with a constant flow of traffic, particularly when you consider it is the only access for a recreation ground; football and cricket clubs; a gym; the cemetery serving the North of the borough plus several homes. Were this development to go ahead we would request that double yellow lines are extended from the junction to the bridge on both sides of Chestnut Avenue plus a KEEP CLEAR instruction installed on Pinner Road to assist with access and egress. We would also like the council to consider whether the commercial space would be suitable for a convenience store, for example, where there would be constant and continual customers on foot, on bikes and in vehicles, thereby putting extra pressure on an already over subscribed zone, with no facilities for parking.

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 runs from 20/09/2022 to 11/10/2022.
