New telephone Box outside Lloyds Pharmacy in Kew Village (ref 17/1948/TEL)

We are pleased to see this application has been refused permission for some of the reasons we gave, summarised below.

Update 12/06/2017

We have objected to an application for a new telephone box on the pavement outside Lloyd’s Pharmacy in Kew Village at 19-21 Station Parade. A similar application outside Tescos on the other side of Station Parade (ref 17/1349/TEL) has just been refused by Richmond Council. The new telephone box on the main pedestrian route from Kew Gardens station to the Royal Botanic Gardens would add unnecessary clutter and do nothing to enhance the character and appearance of this conservation area. Nor is it clear to us that there is demand for telephone boxes in the age of the ubiquitous mobile phone,

    We were delighted to have the chance to offer our Members the opportunity to enjoy an early Sunday morning tour of the London Wetland Centre in Barnes.

    The volunteer guides, Mike, who is also a Kew Society members, and Angela, led a fascinating tour and we learnt about otters, water birds, ducks, dragonflies, water voles and lapwings - mixed in with snippets about planting, wildlife and their habitats. It was a perfect opportunity to explore the beautiful open-air walkways among the lakes and pools of this 105 acre site, perfect for spotting birds and other wildlife residents. We were also blessed with the most beautiful weather.

    If you missed our tour we heartily recommend that you take some time to pop along. It is a wonderful facility right on our doorstep.
