• Appendix 3: Comments of Assistant Development Control Manager LBRuT

Petersham Road site:

• Within conservation area, MOL, Thames Policy Area; area restricting further A3 uses, adjacent to Other Site of Nature Importance

• Think this is a non starter – land use concerns, ground levels, tree issues, accessibility, setting of historic buildings, design and scale concerns

_______________________________

Buccleuch Gardens:

Again, non starter:

• Within other site of nature importance, MOL, Historic Parks and Gardens

• Prominence, harm character of open / rural Petersham Meadows,

_______________________________

Orleans Gardens:

• Whilst contrary to policy, most suitable out of the three

• With Metropolitan Open Land, Adjacent to Other Site of Nature Importance, Within conservation Area, Adjacent to Historic Park, Thames Policy Area, Proximity to listed buildings

Key areas:

• Address height adjacent to road – need lightweight construction – any building shouldn’t be overbearing on this narrow road or out of keeping with park setting.

• Address views across to Ham House

• Establish relationship with river

• How will be managed / linked to Gloriana – don’t want to accept boat house then Gloriana doesn’t get moored here.

• Scheme should replace facilities (café, toilets, playground) – should be

accessible for all to use

• Flooding issue – flood defences

• Need more details of size / uses

_______________________________

I think the feasibility study should also consider other sites before building in MOL

is considered: For example, how about Platts Eyot (Hampton); or store on Eel Pie and shown at

Twickenham Riverside with associated buildings there.
