Have your say on a football pitch in Hatherop Park, Hampton

Release Date: 01 October 2020

An additional football pitch in Hatherop Park is being proposed to support and grow women’s football, whilst continuing to improve the borough’s parks and open spaces.

The new pitch would allow for additional teams to train in Hatherop Park and would protect the existing football pitches from overuse.

The football pitches are used on Sunday mornings from August to April. The new pitch would be situated next to where the current pitches are – away from Hatherop Road to minimise any effects on local residents.

We would like to hear from as many people as possible on the proposal. Letters have been sent to residents living near to the park and your views can be shared online.

Have your say

To require a paper copy of the online survey, email consultation@richmond.gov.uk.

The consultation ends on Friday 16 October 2020.

Cllr Julia Neden-Watts, Chair of the Environment and Sustainability Committee, said:

"We want our parks and open spaces to benefit local people so please take the time to express your views."
