Churchill Ward Labour Councillors Murad Gassanly, Shamim Talukder and Jason Williams have been speaking to local traders and residents on the proposed redevelopment of the historic timber yard in Pimlico Road operated by Travis Perkins.
Grosvenor Estates who own the freehold of the timber yard are expected to submit an application for three large retail units and flats on the site of the yard.
Councillor Murad Gassanly said: “Pimlico Road offers a unique range of quality independent stores and businesses which have been built up over a number of years. We want to ensure that local businesses are able to thrive and the community there continues.”
Councillor Shamim Talukder said: “The traders we have spoken to are concerned about the plans, we would like to hear from local residents and businesses on their views on the proposals. Please get in touch with us with your views.”
Councillor Jason Williams said: “The timber yard has an importance in the area both in terms of its historical significance and its continual existence as a functioning business in the area. We are continuing to speak to local people about their concerns and want to hear from people about their views on the plans.”
