Twickenham Rediscovered - what has happened so far

We have published proposed designs for Twickenham Riverside. The designs have been developed based on feedback from consultation and engagement with residents, businesses and community groups.

Previous consultations

Summer 2017 consultation

From 13 June to 11 July we invited you to have your say on the plans for redevelopment and areas including servicing, access and parking, landscaping and building uses.

The feedback from this consultation will be fed into the final proposal for the site. This will then be consulted on in the autumn ahead of a Planning Application later this year.

Autumn/Winter 2016 consultation

In November/December 2016, Richmond Council consulted residents and businesses in Twickenham on proposals for a new ‘village feel’ for the development on King Street / Water Lane and Twickenham Riverside. This consultation included an exhibition of three proposals at a pop-up shop on Church Street and online survey. Over 630 people completed a survey.

The results showed that almost half of the respondents ranked proposal one as their first choice, with 29% preferring proposal two.

Proposal one

A single building that runs down Water Lane from King Street and a second building that faces the Embankment. In front of this is a generous river terrace and improved access to the Diamond Jubilee Gardens.

Proposal two

An ‘L’ shaped building running down Water Lane from King Street with three with buildings, with pedestrian routes in between, that face the Embankment. The proposal offers a river terrace, improved access to the Diamond Jubilee Gardens and an extension of the Garden’s ‘event space’.

Both proposals have a similar King Street façade, with a covered square, leading onto a raised pedestrian walkway.

Summer 2016 consultation

In summer 2016, we ran a consultation including a series of workshops and engaged with residents, businesses and community groups.
