Hanworth Air Park- Community Woodland Proposal

In response to great support for the creation of a community woodland at Hanworth Park, we will now commence the development of the Community Woodland proposed design and orchard planting plan and will identify funding opportunities to deliver this project.

A reminder of the proposal:

Open up an inaccessible area of woodland, scrub and brownfield land next to Hanworth Air Park to create a new community woodland.

Works include:

  • New adaptive bike trail
  • New pedestrian and cycle paths
  • Creation and enhancement of wildlife habitats
  • Restore a large traditional orchard
  • New cycle hub with café

We thank you for your feedback and the time spent to have your say, and are pleased that the Woodland proposal is fully supported by the community.

The Hanworth Park Community Woodland Consultation Summary can be found on the Parks hub here

The work will ensure that the required level of technical and construction detail are developed for the Community Woodland proposed design, including the Orchard planting plan to submit a planning application.

Subject to a planning decision, if approved, Hounslow Council will look for funding opportunities to deliver this fantastic project for the local community and Hounslow.
