Twickenham Riverside Terrace Group

A riverside in trust for the community

Notice of meeting on 15th October 2001

The Twickenham Riverside Terrace Garden project is now under way, progressing to detailed drawings, fund raising and consultation with local societies, amenity groups and residents. For the riverside land held in trust by the Council for the citizens of Twickenham the project provides for public benefit, an open space with environmental and amenity gain for both residents and visitors to Twickenham.

In brief the project provides single storey buildings which are in harmony with the unique riverside setting of this area. A first floor terrace overlooking the river, with gardens behind. All for river related business and amenity use including a cafe/restaurant. The other existing buildings on the site will be available to accommodate local community groups. In addition there will be ample room to hold the open air events which benefit from a riverside setting.

As the public petition demonstrated there is tremendous public support for this project. In order to inform and outline the proposals there will be a meeting at St Marys Church Hall, Church Street, Twickenham at 8pm on the 15 October next.

* It will only be by the support and strength of public opinion that the Terrace Gardens will be created. Help to ensure that the Twickenham riverside is kept for public use and pleasure for now and for future generations by making your views known to your elected representatives on the Council.
