Future Planning Framework for the Old Deer Park

Closed 4 Nov 2016

Opened 7 Oct 2016


The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames (LBRuT) would like residents, businesses, community groups and organisations, and visitors to help create planning guidelines for the Old Deer Park Conservation Area. The development of a specific Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the Old Deer Park will help guide future developments and environmental improvements to ensure that  they are sensitive to its historic attributes  whilst supporting the important recreational, sporting, and community activities within it.
This is the second stage of consultation, the first having taken place in Summer 2015. We would like your views on the ideas that have been developed based on the feedback that we received from this earlier consultation and research undertaken by the Council. They set out the different approaches that could be taken for the areas of the Park which were the main focus of the responses and evidence.  Your comments will be used to inform the development of the SPD. It is important to emphasise that these ideas are NOT Council policy. Rather they are intended to help understand what the opportunities and challenges may be if different approaches are taken, to help you in providing more detailed comments. 

The results of this further stage of informal consultation will then help to shape the SPD, the draft of which will be consulted on in 2017.
