West London Academy – Stage 2
Comments were provided by TfL at Stage 1 which concluded that the
proposals were broadly acceptable and would not result in a noticeable
impact on the local transport network.
The application sought a reduction in car parking at the site from 119 to 98
spaces with the retention of 8 spaces assigned for disabled use which was
supported by TfL. The Borough has since secured a further reduction in car
parking to 80 spaces which TfL supports.
TfL requested that the cycle parking be increased from 122 to 160 spaces to
ensure that it meets the Replacement London Plan standards. The details of
the cycle parking are subject to a planning condition which should be
amended to include the number of spaces required, stating 160.
TfL confirm that the temporary use of the existing pedestrian access onto
Church Road to the north of Bishops Drive for construction vehicles is
acceptable. TfL will require further consultation to agree the restrictions on
the use of this access both generally and during the 2012 Olympic and
Paralympic Games. TfL oppose the use of this access for permanent
