With its proximity to Heathrow, the M3 and M4, excellent underground, rail and road links, the London Borough of Hounslow is a gateway to the capital and to customers across the world. It has significant potential for economic growth and investment.
Reflecting the opportunities available, Hounslow has a set target for growth above the London Plan levels and as a Council we have one of the largest Council housing building programmes in the UK.
The borough also features modern housing estates, quiet suburbs, green belt villages and has fashionable cosmopolitan districts too. It has some of the most beautiful parks and open spaces in London with no fewer than five historic houses and landscape gardens.
As a business location Hounslow has much to offer. We are the London's gateway to the world but also home to a vibrant community of small local business nationally and international HQs including BSkyB, Glaxo SmithKline, IBM, DHL and many more.
