Hounslow Staines Road

A 6.5 acre site located on the Staines Road close to the centre of Hounslow with significant contamination from its former use for the manufacture of asbestos seals for the defence industry. Beldam Lascar Seals Ltd the former owner of Lascar Works had operated from the site since 1889.

Detailed planning permission was secured on 4.5 acres of this employment allocated site for 225 residential units for family housing and apartments. The balance of 2 acre was retained in commercial use with consent obtained for 13 trade counter and industrial units totalling 45,000 sq. ft.

Aside from the proposal to seek consent for housing on land allocated for employment use the site presented many other problems to be overcome; there was significant toluene contamination and derelict buildings which were heavily contaminated with asbestos to demolish and clear.
