SUMMER 2016 WORKSHOPS
Ham Close residents and members of the local community were invited to work with the RHP and Richmond Council to help shape the proposed redevelopment of Ham Close through a series of the design workshops in June and July 2016. These sessions were devised to give residents, RHP and the Council the opportunity to work together to come up with the best possible design solution for Ham Close should redevelopment go ahead. The workshops were facilitated and experts were on hand to help attendees understand key issues, any constraints and explore possible ideas. 40 spaces were available at each workshop and all but one of the workshops were repeated.
Since the workshops took place, we have produced a presentation summarising all the feedback received. This can be found here. Please note that there is one small error in this material: 19 people (rather than 24) attended the 'Impact of Construction' workshop.
RHP and Richmond Council worked with the architects to include feedback in the potential design proposals for the site and continue to do so where possible in further design development. To view the October 2016 proposal, please click here.
This set the scene for developing a local proposal. It outlined what is possible in terms of financial viability and what this could mean in terms of the number of properties. Please note that the figures used in the presentation are for modelling purposes only and are not a proposal.
