Brentford to see a new High Street

Suzie Betlem spoke on behalf of Brentford Chamber at the Planning Committee meeting which approved Ballymore's scheme for the Land South of the High Street.

Ballymore's vision of the High StreetWhile we would have preferred the scheme to have been substantially re-written since it was initially rejected by the public in November 2012, we look forward to working with Ballymore to help them progress the scheme in the best manner possible.

As a Chamber we will continue to urge Ballymore to increase this amount for existing Brentford businesses.
