Town Centre Improvement Scheme Consultation: the Richmond Society responds

Richmond Council has produced an initial list of five mini projects to improve Richmond Town Centre. Three of these are fully funded and ready to go. The three projects are Richmond Bridge Zebra Crossing, Parkshot Road crossing and The Triangle / Hill Rise Public Realm Improvements.

The proposals can be found on the Council’s consultation provider’s website. The public consultation on them closed on 10th October 2021.

The Society gave qualified support to the other two proposals.
