HAM CLOSE REGENERATION PROGRAMME
RHP (Richmond Housing Partnership) is the freeholder of the 192 flats at Ham Close and together with Richmond Council they own much of the land in the area. The flats at Ham Close are of poor construction, with poor insulation by today’s standards. Many have condensation/damp issues. In addition, there are no lifts, leaving a number of flats inaccessible to people with disabilities. RHP and Richmond Council are therefore working with the local community to develop plans to improve Ham Close.
In 2013, The Prince’s Foundation for Building Communities, were invited by RHP and Richmond Council to work with residents, businesses and local organisations, to consider the future of Ham Close. They produced a report which highlighted the principles on which any future vision for the area should be based.
