Another point we would like to add is regarding the footpath [Station Walk]. This forms an essential part of a direct pedestrian route from Ladbroke Grove underground to Latimer Road underground, much of it sheltered from adverse weather by the Westway overhang. There are many CCTV cameras protecting the businesses located along the route, thus increasing the safety factor. Children attending the new Academy may also choose to use this very direct route as an alternative, as Latimer Road station

Looking at the plans in the draft SPD, it seems to us that it would be better to build a new Leisure Centre on the old Silchester Baths site in Lancaster Road (which a number of our residents remember with fondness) and build the new Academy on the site of the present Leisure Centre. Putting the Academy on that part of the site would place it much further away from local residential dwellings, not just ours, and would mean that the impact of the daily activities of children, parents, teachers, o

At one of the meetings when Council staff came to see us, one of our residents understood that some of our land is to be taken over by the Academy. Our local councillors have assured us that this is not the case and the site plan clearly does not include any of our garden. But we would, for the avoidance of doubt, wish to make it clear that we will not tolerate any of our wonderful garden being used - either during the construction period or afterwards - for this development.

It would be interesting to see some COl or graphic of the proposed architectural design structure and detailing of the as yet big mysterious monolith that will be emerging quite soon - and interesting to know just what we will be looking at from our windows for many years to come.

We have some concerns regarding the Silchester Road perimeter of the new school, and think that a substantial wall - similar to the present one surrounding Whitchurch House - would seem a very good idea Any low landscaping detail planned may allow walk-on access all along the road, therefore it would inevitably become a pick up/drop off zone for vehicles with associated noise, slamming car doors and pollution from revving engines. There is also a chance that students could run directly onto Silc

Any new street planning that promotes vehicle access from Lancaster Road or Silchester Road to the new school and through to Grenfell Road would have a very disturbing outcome regarding the quality of life anticipated and expected by the aged residents of Whitchurch and Blechynden Houses. Opening up Grenfell Road to join Silchester Road and Lancaster Road would have a disastrous effect on the residential amenity of our residents. The new Grenfell RoadJSilchester Road junction would be directly o

The part of Whitchurch House facing the new school contains mostly bed-sit accommodation. The outer walls of each dwelling have a substantial area of single glazing, especially the French doors along the ground floor. Both of the communal lounges also have substantial areas of single glazing facing Silchester Road (all the corridors are at the other side of the house to mitigate the noise from the Hammersmith and City line). Therefore, there will be no hiding place for the elderly and sometimes

As an active local residents' association that will be directly affected for many years as a result of these plans, we wish to place on record our formal request that we be invited to participate in any Residents' Forum or Partnership Board that will take these plans forward. We recognise the need for a new secondary school and we do not oppose it in principle. However, we do wish to ensure that our interests are acknowledged and safeguarded throughout the construction period and afterwards when

Therefore, secondary noise reducing glazing units with a 100mm air gap would be most desirable - to be fitted before the construction work starts on the school - perhaps as part of a goodwill bundle (which we believe is known as "community gain"). Double glazing units preventing heat transference could be fitted to the existing opening casement windows at the same time as the secondary noise-resisting glazing units and will transfer heat owing to conduction. And how about also providing a nice t

The councillors and officers are condemning residents and pupils for years to come to an unsatisfactory future. Shame on the council, shame on the aldridge foundation.
