A planning application has been submitted to knock together two buildings, a former beauty salon, and a pizza restaurant, at the northern end of Turnham Green Terrace to create space for a large restaurant.

The application, which has been made by Portchester Properties would see the premises formerly occupied by Luminis knocked into the building currently occupied by Pizza Treat and incorporated into a space of 185 sqms.

It seeks 'Amalgamation of 59-61 (Sui Generis) and 63 (Class A3/A5) at basement and ground floor levels to provide a single restaurant (Class A3) and/or retail unit (Class A1), together with external refurbishment of the shopfront'.

The proposed retail unit or restaurant would extend to 185 sqm and the proposed trading hours would be 7am – 11pm daily, which is in line with other neighbouring units.

There is as yet no detail of what type of restaurant might be suitable for the development. The application says that it is envisaged that the internal layout could be tailored to suit the needs of any ingoing tenant.

"The submitted layout has been designed to be attractive to a wider range of potential occupiers."

Luminus recently moved further up the street to a new location.

A recent bid to turn the former Bread Shop into a restaurant was turned down as Hounslow Council planners said the building had to retained for retail purposes.

However the developers say that they are hopeful of getting permission because "There have been a number of changes of use and refurbishment applications granted planning permission
on Turnham Green Terrace in recent years, which demonstrates that the Council is taking a positive approach to development proposals in the immediate area and adapting land uses to meet the changing needs of occupiers of the commercial unit."

Local landlords are watching the application with interest.
