Final designs for Twickenham Riverside now published

Release Date: 10 October 2017

The latest proposals for redeveloping Twickenham Riverside have now been published by Richmond Council – inviting feedback on the designs online and at a series of public exhibitions.

Over the past two years, Richmond Council has been engaging with residents and businesses in Twickenham in order to gather the creative ideas of all those who wish to see a new heart for the area.

The Council is now consulting on the proposals until Monday 30 October.

The designs incorporate feedback from all previous consultations and engagement activities.

Residents can see the designs online and in an exhibition on the below dates in the Clarendon Hall, York House.

  • Monday 9 October from 6 to 8.30pm
  • Thursday 12 October from 6 to 8.30pm
  • Saturday 14 October from 11am to 4pm
  • Monday 16 October from 6 to 8.30pm
  • Thursday 26 October from 6 to 8.30pm

Feedback from this consultation will be fed into a final design for the site, ahead of a Planning Application being submitted before Christmas.

Cllr Pamela Fleming, Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning, said:

“We have always promised to make Twickenham a town centre that local people can be proud of. We have already invested millions into improving King Street. Transforming the Riverside is the next stage on this journey.

“At the start of this process we committed to listening to local people. And, as the designs for the site have developed, it is possible to see how every element has incorporated resident, local community groups and business ideas and feedback.

“I hope that throughout the consultation, residents and businesses will have their say and help us move forward with transforming a site that has been derelict for over 35 years.”

Visit the Twickenham Rediscovered page to view the designs and have your say online by 30 October.
