Are you a retail landlord?


New tenants, less vacant units and more successful high streets; improving your potential rental income and increasing real estate asset values across Hounslow.


We are planning a series of initiatives to sustainably repopulate vacant units and help landlords in the borough to achieve their goals.

This kicks off in January 2022 with a campaign to find, house and grow a new generation of high street tenants, while understanding what support local landlords need from, Hounslow Council and their local community champions.

Who is this for?

All landlords with both vacant and occupied Class E units within the London borough of Hounslow.

Social Proof

The success of high streets in Hounslow impacts everyone locally. 

The future of the high street depends on how we all act now.
