Park Road Allotment holders receive six-month extension

Following negotiations between Hounslow Council and the Northumberland Estate, agreement has been reached to extend the Park Road allotment holders leases by six-months until September 2020.

The Council is committed to working with Syon Park Estate Management to prepare plans for the sustainable management of the Estate, and to design a scheme that meets its objectives whilst continuing to serve the community.

This positive agreement will allow all the parties more time to continue discussions to find acceptable ways forward.

Cllr Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said:

“I’m pleased that we have been able to work together to allow the allotment holders to stay on site for a further six months.  I’m hopeful that our continuing dialogue will deliver a solution that is acceptable to all.”

Colin Barnes from the Northumberland Estate, said:

“We are confident that we will agree a way forward which delivers a good solution for all parties and allowing more time to achieve that makes sense. Both ourselves and the Council want a sustainable future for Syon Park that preserves its heritage and benefits local people and we will work positively to make that happen.”
