Background

In 2019 we ran a design competition to find an architect led team to bring forward a design for the Twickenham Riverside site. The team led by Hopkins Architects, and their concept design, were chosen by the Design Panel as winners of the competition.

The concept design presented to the public was then developed by the team throughout 2020, addressing some challenging technical requirements.

In January to February 2021 we ran a consultation seeking views on the developed design.

Current situation (September 2021)

The planning application has now been submitted proposing an exciting new development for Twickenham Riverside – one that hopes to end forty years of uncertainty.

Responding to the constructive feedback during the consultation, a number of changes have been made to the proposals.

These include:

  • An improved event space
  • Refining the open space and re-provided Diamond Jubilee Gardens, including increased green space where possible
  • Finessing the vehicular, pedestrian and cyclist movements on the site; including public toilets on the ground floor of the new Wharf Lane building
  • Further work on a river activity zone

As part of the planning process, a statutory consultation will be carried out. It is expected to go to Planning Committee later in the year.
