Update 04/01/2018

We have commented on the proposed construction of a 4 bedroom house with 2 car parking spaces and refuse, recycling and cycle storage and replacement of part of the boundary wall with gates and railings to provide new pedestrian and vehicular access and selective tree clearance with replacement hard and soft landscaping.

We made a general observation to ask for conditions for an effective scheme of tree screening around the proposed development and that the style and character of predominantly family houses in the road be maintained in the future with consent clearly restricted to a single residential unit whose use cannot be increased for example by subdivision.

Sorry, comments are closed for this post.

    We are delighted that Kew Society members have been offered a rare opportunity to visit the Economic Botany Collection at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. This is the oldest and perhaps the most fascinating of Kew's science collections.

    The tour is lead by Mark Nesbitt, who is senior Ethobotanist and Curator at RGB Kew and he will delve into Kew's history and current science research via a unique collections of rubber, lacebark, Chinese medicines and other useful plants.

    Members should be aware that the temperature is cool (17C / 63F) and the tour involves walking (including poorly lit paths) but no steps.

    The tour is very generously free, and there are 15 places available offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please email events@kewsociety.org to secure your place on the tour and to find out where to meet.

    We are exceedingly grateful to Mark Nesbitt for making this most generous offer to our members.
