Senior Hounslow Council officials will be meeting with the prospective purchasers of Lionel Road this week, and will be outlining their support for the development of a new stadium and regeneration of the site as their preferred option, rather than a warehousing complex.

They will also propose that if the proposed sale still goes ahead the new owners should meet with Bees United and Brentford FC to discuss the merits of entering into a joint venture which may be mutually beneficial.

There has also been a boost to the plans for developing Lionel Road as a transport hub alongside a new stadium with news that Crossrail Ltd, a company jointly owned by the Strategic Rail Authority and Transport for London, are considering a direct rail route from Paddington, via the North London Line, to Richmond and Kingston.

Existing Silverlink trains would then terminate at Hounslow, making better use of the Kew Bridge junction, and providing a direct link to the new Eurostar terminal at Stratford, exactly as suggested in the Bees United plans.
