I fully support the Twickenham Riverside Terrace scheme in all respects.
I have also formally objected to the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames to the Dawnay Day Scheme on the following grounds:
- Inappropriate use of a site which was purchased in the 1920s, at Ratepayers’ expense, for the benefit of Local Citizens’ use in perpetuity.
- Overdevelopment in an area with poor road access creating more traffic and pollution in an already congested area.
- The inclusion of any form of parking for residents in the development when, as a condition of planning consent, the occupants of the recently constructed cottages in Water Lane are not even permitted to apply for parking permits. One rule for the rich and another for the less well off.
- The quality of design of the South West elevation facing the river. It gives the impression of cheap two storey beach huts on stilts with a roof line reminiscent of a Second World War Nissen Hut.
- The design of the elevations facing Water Lane and Wharf Lane which are similar to 1960s army barracks. Additionally, in Water Lane, an unacceptable overshadowing of the attractive modern cottages on the North East side which would no longer even see the sun after early afternoon.
