It is important that Richmond residents and those working in the Borough know about and are prioritised for the marketing of home ownership opportunities by Registered Providers. To achieve the Council has worked with local Registered Providers to develop an Intermediate Housing Marketing Statement(pdf, 908KB). This provides direction to Registered Providers on how they market intermediate housing schemes and re-sale units in the Borough.
