The Hill on the Heath is a proposal to create a leisure development on the Hounslow Heath site in west London.
Project manager Appleby Petfield has drawn up plans for the site — including major landscaping and planting work — and are in talks with Hounslow Council.
The major feature of the site would be a 23m hill, reminiscent of the landscape forms at nearby Northala Fields in Ealing, where four conical mounds rise up to 26m from the ground.
Appleby Petfield director Andrew Petfield told HW: "The idea is to provide an integrated outdoor leisure facility, but the main showpiece will be the hill."
Hounslow Heath is currently cared for by Continental Landscapes on behalf of Hounslow Council, and senior ecologist Chris Slack has met with Appleby Petfield to discuss the proposals, along with the Friends of Hounslow Heath.
"We would like to make a start reasonably quickly," added Andrew Petfield. "There is a lot of landscaping work to do."
