HAM CLOSE REGENERATION PROGRAMME
Following the most recent engagement events in February 2022, a planning application for the regeneration of Ham Close was submitted at the end of April 2022.
For the latest information on the redevelopment and for more details regarding the planning application visit www.hamcloseconsultation.co.uk. A link to the planning application, where comments can be made on the application, can be found here. The reference number for the planning application is 22/1442/FUL.
RHP and Hill will be holding another drop-in session exclusively for Ham Close residents with members of the design team where you can view the key planning application documents and ask any questions. It will be held on the 30th June 2022, 4:30pm to 7:30pm St Richard’s C of E Church, Ashburnham Road, Richmond, TW10 7NL.
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. RHP and Richmond Council are 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 in 2014 which highlighted the principles on which any future vision for the area should be based.
In 2015, the architects BPTW were appointed to take these principles and provide indicative design options with the engagement of Ham Close residents and members of the local community through a series of design workshops in 2016 that led later that year to a consultation, masterplan and a Customer Offer.
In 2018 it became clear to RHP and the Council that the outline master plan of 425 homes was financially unviable.
In developing the masterplan further to improve its' viability, since 2019, RHP and the Council have moved forward with a scheme of circa 452 homes, as close to the 2016 masterplan as possible.
A two-stage process to select a developer to work with RHP to deliver the scheme commenced in March 2020 and June 2021 Hill were selected as the developer. The news surrounding the
next steps for the regeneration of Ham Close, including future consultation and engagement activity, will be available in the NEWS SUMMARY on the top right of this page.
On the 22nd of July 2021, the consultation website launched. The website is host to the emerging proposals for Ham Close and provides residents with the opportunity to provide feedback. If you have any questions about our proposals or the consultation, please do get in touch at:
