Richmond Council this week announced consultation dates for identifying ten sites - including two in Teddington - for future housing, retail and employment opportunities in the borough over the next 15 years.

The Site Action Plan, which has already identified 40 sites and gathered local feedback on them last year, is now looking at ten more potential sites - including Teddington Station and the Royal Mail Delivery Office - should they become available.

A Council spokesperson clarified: "The consultation will gather feedback on plans that mean if these sites ever become available, a potential buyer would know what the Council would expect them to consider when developing the site."

An example would be the site of the old Post Office sorting office at Twickenham. When it became available, developers needed to allocate space for housing as well as incorporating a community space, among other things.

Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Planning, Cllr Susan Chappell, said: “It is important for as many people as possible to comment on these plans as it identifies areas of change in the borough for the next 15 years. Development opportunities are limited in the Borough because much of the beautiful heritage is in protected green space areas. We must make the best use of sites where regeneration is possible. I would encourage everyone to get involved in the consultation to make sure your views are heard.”

View the consultation page now. It will run until Monday July 21.

Details can also be seen in Richmond libraries.
