Village Plan Walkabout

Successful event

Last updated: Wednesday 22nd June 2016

Hampton Wick residents on Village Plan walkabout

Local residents joined councillors and council officers on the Hampton Wick Village Plan walkabout on Sunday (19th June). Around 20 people took part in this walkabout which took place in the village centre starting at 11am with a further one taking place at 2pm on the Hampton Wick/Teddington borders.

Many of the issues raised and problems identified can also be found in the Hampton Wick Conservation Area Study published in 1997 by LBRuT (John Barkley, Director, Planning, Transport and Client Services and Yvonne Trimmer, Head of Planning and Building Control).

It is well worth reading. Here is a short extract from the introduction:

Hampton Wick today – Character Appraisal

Hampton Wick has stubbornly retained its own identity and sense of place

Hampton Wick is a fine example of one of the many ‘urban’ villages which exist in Greater London. Despite the encroachment of London it has stubbornly retained its own identity and sense of place. The village survives today as a triangular wedge constrained by the River Thames to the east and Bushy and Home Parks to the west and is bounded ot the north by the periphery of Teddington. Whilst the overall boundaries of the village have changed very little, plots within the village have been redeveloped and often sub-divided as opportunities arose.

Local Train disruption

Buses will replace trains between Teddington/ Strawberry hill and Shepperton from 16-30 July

Last updated: Monday 20th June 2016

Fulwell Tunnel has flooded frequently in recent years and South West Trains know how disruptive this has been to the journeys of thousands of passengers. SWT aim to reduce this disruption by carrying out vital repair work on the line between Fulwell and Shepperton, particularly the tunnel at Fulwell. This includes replacing and upgrading the drainage system and constructing a new pumping station.

There will be no trains running between Teddington, Strawberry Hill and Shepperton, in either direction, from the 16th to the 30th of July. Replacement buses will run throughout this time. Journeys will take longer and replacement buses will be provided.
