Dorsett Open House on Walkabout Plans - 19th October

Dorsett Hospitality International, the group who renovated the old Shepherd's Bush Pavilion and have turned it into a successful upscale hotel, are opening their doors for an Open Evening on Wednesday 19th October.

Local residents will be able to see the revised plans for the Walkabout pub - plans which have now been submitted for formal approval.

The Open Evening will take place at Dorsett Shepherds Bush, 58 Shepherds Bush Green on Wednesday 19th October from 6.00pm to 8.00pm. All are welcome.

Rejected 2015 proposal for the Walkabout
What's this about?
Dorsett Hospitality International are inviting local residents to a Public Exhibition of re-re-revised plans for the ‘Walkabout’ site, next to the new Dorsett Shepherd's Bush Hotel.

The revised proposals have taken on board the comments made at previous consultation events and members of Dorsett’s team will be on hand to explain the design revisions and to answer questions.

Where and when?
The Open Evening will be at Dorsett Shepherd's Bush, 58 Shepherd's Bush Green on Wednesday 19th October from 6pm to 8pm

Who designed the new plans?

The revised proposals have been designed by Flanagan Lawrence Architects who were responsible for the award-winning restoration of the Dorsett Hotel

What are the key points of the new proposals?

· There will be no tower
· The building will be considerably lower at the front and rear than the previous proposal
· Retaining parts of the existing building, mainly the facades
· There will be a cinema in the basement
· The building will be lower at the rear facing Pennard Road

What else is being proposed?
The new building will be an extension to the existing hotel and the ground floor will provide additional hotel restaurant space.  In addition, Dorsett propose to "significantly improve the Rockwood Place environment so that it provides a safe, secure and attractive pedestrian route from Pennard Road to Shepherd’s Bush Green".

Who will be at the exhibition?
Members of Dorsett International’s professional team will be on hand at the Public Exhibition to explain the proposals and to answer questions.
