Hounslow Council will officially open the newly refurbished The Hartlands Caravan Park in Cranford, this Friday, 2 December 2016.

Tom Copley, London Assembly’s Housing Committee Deputy Chairman, will be joined by Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council and ward councillors at the Hartland’s Community Centre, in Cranford Lane.

The Council is committed to providing high quality decent facilities for travellers within the borough and has been able to deliver the project in partnership with various organisations across the borough.

Hartlands had required much needed work on all facilities and renovation was carried out to provide a community hub area for families to use and a centre where they can meet with council officers to discuss issues. There is also access for young residents to educational activities on site.

There are new brick amenity blocks providing kitchen, bath/shower and toilet facilities and electricity supplied to caravan mobile homes and a base to house two caravans/mobile homes, with a designated space to park two additional vehicles.

The area has now been fully transformed from a run-down site to a site that is beyond recognition, with the aim of establishing a sense of community for the residents and improved relationships with neighbours who live next to the site.

Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council said: “This has undoubtedly been a challenging project to deliver but will make a huge difference to the lives of the families involved.

“We are really pleased to see how well this development meets the needs of the residents who have lived in very poor conditions for many years.

“Developing the site was complex, and time-consuming, and was achieved with funding support and a strong commitment to delivery. We are very grateful to the GLA and to everyone who has helped us complete this development.”
