Hampton Wick Station is undergoing a number of improvements thanks to the Friends of Hampton Wick Station and funding from Richmond Council’s Civic Pride Fund and South West Trains.
Friends of Hampton Wick Station were awarded £3,350 from the Council’s Civic Pride Fund to undertake a feasibility study looking at the regeneration of the station last year. South West Trains match-funded the Council’s award and the Friends of Hampton Wick Station set about making a number of changes.
So far a feasibility study has been produced and a flyer questionnaire circulated to ask local residents what improvements they would like to see made at the station. This is part of a wider project to regenerate the entire station which is due to take place later in the year. In addition attractive panelling inspired by Bushy Park now lines the underpass at the station.
Richmond Council’s Cabinet Member for Community, Planning and the Voluntary Sector, Cllr Susan Chappell, said:
“These are exciting times for the Friends of Hampton Wick Station and residents who use the station on a regular basis. The new panelling looks great and is inspired by Bushy Park to give it a local feel. I look forward to seeing the entire project completed as it will improve the look and feel of the station.”
Jane Turner, Friends of Hampton Wick Station, added:
“We are delighted to work in partnership with Richmond Council and South West Trains Community Links to enhance Hampton Wick Station. This is the first step in what we hope will be many improvements in the future.”
We are very keen to engage with all Hampton Wick residents so that they can comment on all aspects of the project. Residents can sign up for updates by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
