PROPOSED REACH ACADEMY HANWORTH PARK, FELTHAM, HOUNSLOW.
Welcome to our public consultation page for the proposed development of Reach Academy Hanworth Park, a new all-through School at Feltham, Hounslow.
DPP Planning are preparing a planning application on behalf of Bowmer + Kirkland (on behalf of the Department for Education).
Undertaking public consultation with local residents and businesses in advance of submitting a planning application is an important part of the planning process. It allows members of the public and the local community to engage with the Applicant’s proposed vision for the site and to provide valuable feedback on the proposals.
The site currently forms part of the larger Ministry of Defence (MOD) Feltham site which is to be progressively wound down and released for alternative development. These proposals are to be guided by the Feltham MOD Planning Brief dating from 2017. This Brief identified the use of the current pre-app site for Education Use. The majority of buildings on site are vacant, and they range in size from single storey to 4 storeys.
In terms of the surrounding area, the High Street (A244) is to the west of the site which contains a number of commercial units with residential above, along with the current Reach Academy Feltham. To the east and south east, the site abuts Maple Way, a private road within the larger MOD complex and which is separate from the proposed application site by a substantial security fence. To the south, the site adjoins two and three storey residential properties fronting Elmwood Avenue, and to the north beyond Browells Lane lie a number of commercial uses, as well as Feltham Green park.
An aerial image of the site is provided below:
The proposals include the demolition of the existing MOD buildings on site to make space for the new school, which will comprise a new teaching block, sports block and nursery block as well as a MUGA and grass playing field, along with access, parking, landscaping and associated infrastructure.
The main teaching block is proposed as a 5-storey L-shaped building to be located to the east of the site. It will comprise a variety of specialist teaching classrooms and assembly hall. The sports block will be a single storey building and located opposite to the teaching block, adjacent to the existing Reach Academy to the west of the site. The nursery will also be a single storey building and will be located to the north, along the access road to the site. See plans at the bottom of this webpage for further detail.
25 car parking spaces are proposed along this access road and a 141sqm cycle shelter is proposed to the south of the nursery block which will hold over 100 cycle spaces.
As pictured in the proposed site plan below, the MUGA and grassed playing fields will be located to the south of the site.
