We're Back!

Our website got compromised over the Christmas period and it's taken longer than usual to get back up and running, and we've swapped server hosts as well.

The website is now back up, as you can see, but we have lost a few months of articles and many of the images need replacing. Please bear with us as we restore what is necessary.

A very happy new year to you all

Proposing a waterside strategy

Three of the principal waterside stakeholders affected by the Ballymore development have put together a proposed waterside strategy. Rather than wait for Ballymore and/or Hounslow Council to put forward one Malthouse Marine Associates (Malthouse Wharf), Messrs Radleys Partnership (Town Wharf ) and Olivers Boatyard Ltd ( MSO Marine ) have put forward their draft strategy for the complicated waterside.

The waterway needs to provide an entrance/exit between the UK canal system and the river Thames. Water depth can vary substantially depending on tides and flash floods.

• Make the majority of London physically green
• Improve London’s air and water quality, year on year
• Improve the richness, connectivity and biodiversity of London’s
habitats
• Inspire the building of affordable green homes

EU Referendum

EU Referendum

Surprisingly, our Chamber executive did not mirror all the public polls that suggest the EU Referendum will be very close. But we asked them to vote with a business head rather than their personal view which will be expressed on June 23rd.

Purely considering our businesses, 8 of us voted to remain with only 2 advocating an exit. However, businesses don't get a vote.

We have no wish to add to the voices telling you which way to vote, whether supported by facts or rhetoric. We'd just like to encourage you all to vote and to encourage your staff to do so.

If you haven't registered the deadline has been extended to midnight tonight (Thursday). Please don't leave it until then to register.
