New HWA Planning Representative

I took over as Planning Officer in September, prompted by a desire to help preserve the village ambience of the area. I’ve been surprised by the volume of issues that have been raised since then, ranging from the signage in the minicab office through to 2 Seymour Road and latterly The Old Town Hall and Bermuda and Brentham Houses.

The Old Town Hall is up for auction and I was surprised to discover that it was not a listed building. We discussed it at our last committee meeting and were unanimous in agreeing that both the façade and the interior should be preserved as it is such an important landmark in the community. We are busy lobbying Richmond Council to try to ensure it is preserved as far as possible.

More important though has been the discovery that there are plans to convert Bermuda and Brentham Houses into student accommodation. We believe there is already generous student accommodation within Hampton Wick. A large influx of young residents who will each be staying only for a short time is likely to have a considerable impact on a small, deep-rooted community like Hampton Wick.

If you agree with our aims and wish to support us do please get in touch.
