Conservation Officers are looking at buildings in the Borough where deterioration of the fabric might constitute eligibility for inclusion on English Heritage’s Buildings at Risk Register.  TIS’s request has been approved to consider The George Inn and Holme Court Twickenham Road, the former Rose & Crown Public House, London Road and Worton Hall, Worton Road, in addition to various ancient market garden boundary walls. There has been no update on when the revised draft will become available for Isleworth Riverside Conservation Area Appraisal to take account of TIS’s and other comments submitted on the earlier consultation version.

The following is a selection of the usual plethora of applications reviewed:-

Coach & Horses, London Road (Grade ll Listed) application to extend existing beer garden, undertake paving, Astroturf, festoon lighting and install a new burger shack – refused due to harm to character and appearance of Conservation Area and harm to setting of Listed Building.
