Grow and buy local…
There are currently 29 allotment sites in the borough of Hounslow. Due to the volume of applicants all the allotment sites now have waiting lists. The waiting list for allotments in Chiswick, Isleworth and Brentford have been closed. Given this we are encouraging as many residents as possible to share their underutilised garden space through landshare.
You can support 150 local traders along Brentford High Street – one of West London’s most historic shopping areas, which was once the county market town of Middlesex.
