The London Borough of Hounslow is located to the West of Central London. Hounslow became a Borough in 1965 when six areas, Brentford, Chiswick, Heston, Isleworth and Feltham were merged to form to become part of Greater London. Whilst Chiswick was a popular Georgian suburb, up until the 19th century, most of the borough was rural. However with its canal and access to the Thames the area attracted industry and much development took place during the 19th and 20th centuries.
With six of London’s stately homes located in Hounslow, namely Boston Manor House, Chiswick House, Gunnersbury Park Mansions, Hogarth’s House, Osterley House and Syon House, the Borough’s architectural heritage is certainly impressive.
Get Planning and Architecture has overseen a number of successful projects in the London borough of Hounslow. Our team of experts have worked on a wide range of projects here, and are familiar with the Local Planning Authority.
