Richmond Council's Leader, Lord True, said:
“The Borough of Richmond upon Thames, with its large parks and unique small towns and villages, is unquestionably the most beautiful in London. Our borough is unique and it has been given its essential character by the legacy of history and exceptional natural beauty. No wonder that, even in Shakespeare’s days, it was the favourite home of the first Queen Elizabeth.
“We are defined by the Thames, our Royal Parks, and world famous attractions such as Hampton Court Palace and the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, as well as by a host of smaller historic sites and wide green spaces. We also seek to protect the diverse built environment and garden suburbs we have inherited and which are always so admired by visitors.”
