Twickenham Riverside Terrace Group

A riverside in trust for the community

Response: Jim Deasley

Having seen the plans, I do feel it lacks something; it is a very literal interpretation of grassing over the pool. There must be room for a third way, maybe the parking moved up the hill next to the service road, stepped pedestrian terraces right down to the water’s edge with a fringe of 2 and 3 storey houses on W and N sides (both to finance the scheme and to police it out of hours), and a couple of cafes as well as the boat hire offices. I still hope the pontoon could be achieved, with basic facilities to service passing narrow boat traffic; it would add to the character and interest of the Embankment.
Best wishes
