In­dus­trial es­tate re­vamp

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THEY say ‘it takes two’, but right now we have a spot of dou­ble trou­ble at the re-hom­ing cen­tre. We have a num­ber of sib­lings who we are strug­gling to place in a new home be­cause peo­ple are un­der­stand­ably re­luc­tant to take on twice as much care and cost when it comes to adopt­ing an an­i­mal. But you could also see it as twice the love com­ing back at you and you are guar­an­tee­ing that a sib­ling pair is not go­ing to be split up.

Take Rafiki and Simba, for ex­am­ple, a hand­some pair of brother cats of about two years old.

Th­ese boys sadly ended up in our care be­cause their pre­vi­ous owner just could not pro­vide for all their needs.

Rafiki, who is tabby and white, and Simba, a ginger fel­low, are fun-loving fe­lines who like noth­ing bet­ter than to play and are look­ing for a new home where they will also en­joy lots of love and at­ten­tion.

Could you help them make a new start?

On the other hand, if you were a rab­bit and both fluffy and happy, who IN­DUS­TRIAL units could be built at the site of a for­mer fac­tory, help­ing to re­ju­ve­nate the area and cre­ate jobs, if plan­ning con­sent is given.

Optima Cap­i­tal ( UK) Limited has ap­plied for per­mis­sion to con­struct two mod­ern in­dus­trial build­ings at the Uxbridge In­dus­trial Es­tate, where the Trim­ite paint fac­tory once stood.

The company, which owns the site in Arun­del Road, Uxbridge, hopes even­tu­ally to build a ‘se­ries’ of ware­house and in­dus­trial build­ings de­signed to suit a ‘range of oc­cu­piers’. could re­sist you?

Well Happy and Fluffy are a very friendly and strik­ing pair of rab­bits look­ing for their ‘for­ever home’ to­gether.

Fluffy is the doe and she is a gor­geous tawny black lady of about two years old. Brother Happy, who is the same age, is mostly white with some brown on his ears, round his eyes and on his twitchy lit­tle nose.

They make a very strik­ing pair.

Like all rab­bits, they will need spa­cious ac­com­mo­da­tion and a large run, where they can en­joy lots of play and ex­er­cise, as well as a nu­tri­tious diet.

Very han­dleable, they en­joy lots of loving and cud­dles, so you will get the love back twice over.

Can you of­fer Happy and Fluffy the per­fect home for the rest of their lives?

Can you of­fer ei­ther pair of an­i­mals a loving home? If the an­swer is ‘yes’, then please call the RSPCA Slough, Hilling­don, Wind­sor, Kingston and dis­trict branch on 01895 833 417 or visit our web­site, www.rspca hilling­don­ for an ap­pli­ca­tion form.

In doc­u­ments lodged with Hilling­don Coun­cil, it says the de­vel­op­ment would ‘help to re­gen­er­ate a site which has been run down for some time, bring­ing it back into ben­e­fi­cial use’.

The company ac­quired the site in 2013.

If it is al­lowed to go ahead with its full plans, the de­vel­op­ment’s foot­print would to­tal 3,454m� – more than dou­ble the ex­ist­ing 1,633m�.

Plan­ning of­fi­cers are sched­uled to make a decision by Jan­uary 21, 2015.

A con­sul­ta­tion with neigh­bours is un­der way.
