The final day of the inquiry into the proposed development on the Goldhawk Estate has been brought forward to Tuesday, June 8.

Proceedings begin at 1pm with evidence from Andrew Slaughter MP, followed by conditions, S106 contributions, submissions and statements, finishing soon after 5.00pm.

Brackenbury Residents' Association, who have fought a high-profile battle to prevent the demolition of Goldhawk Industrial Estate, are urging local people to "finish strongly" by turning out in large numbers at the Town Hall's Assembly Room.

The three week inquiry has been looking into the application by developer Londonewcastle to build 57 new homes and eight commercial units on the estate, currently home to several local businesses including the Soundhouse recording studio and Innocent Drinks.

When Hammersmith and Fulham council gave planning consent last September for the controversial development to go ahead, residents wrote to the Secretary of State asking for a Public Inquiry.

Since then, they have appointed a barrister and, through various fundraising events, have raised almost all of the £12,000 needed to pay his fees.

Brackenbury Residents Association is still fund-raising to pay the full amount  -  find out more and contact the association at Brackenbury Residents' Association .
