We were appointed by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to develop a number of options as part of the Twickenham Town Centre Area Action Plan.
Following a detailed baseline review, our team worked with Local Members, business and community stakeholders and planning policy officers to develop a series of options for change in the town centre. The most ambitious of these envisaged a truly transformational impact on Twickenham, involving major developments and radical changes to transport infrastructure and public spaces.
A number of events were held through the statutory six-week consultation period, incorporating questionnaires, meetings and workshops including with young people. The resulting preferred option set out a framework for the delivery of several sites including the Northern Approach and Riverside.
Following the adoption of the Area Action Plan, a number of key projects have been realised. This includes the implementation of substantial developments in the area and the regeneration of a major town centre site.
