Petition to challenge Richmond Council's decision
Please complete the petition below to overturn Richmond Council's decision to approve the building of tower blocks over Twickenham Railway Station.
The decision can be overturned by the Mayor of London on the grounds:
- Lacked public support - less than 20 comments to the LBRuT supported the height of the residential development and over 5500 opposed it.
- Poor design - the poor design was not challenged by LBRuT who did not seek any advice.
- Station fit for purpose - the new station will only provide the bare minimum level of station facilities and minimal improvement for match day visitors (quotes from the developer) and fails to meet the requirements of Network Rail's guide for Station Planning and Design (July 2011)
- Social housing - no social housing is provided whereas the standard requirement is 50%.
