Industrial estate revamp
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 hillingdonclinic.org.uk 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.
