The formal planning application for a major redevelopment of the area around Hampton Court Station has now been submitted to Elmbridge Council. The detailed proposals can be viewed on the planning section of the Council’s website using the planning application reference number 2018/3810. A separate application (2018/3803) has also been made seeking permission for a temporary 110 space car park on Cigarette Island during the period of the building works.
We will be scrutinising these plans carefully over the coming weeks and listening to the views of residents and local groups such as the Hampton Court Rescue Campaign. Like most residents, we want a solution to this neglected site which will benefit local residents and tourists visiting Hampton Court Palace, but from an initial scrutiny there would appear to be serious concerns about the scale of these plans, the proposed level of on-site parking, and the impact on the local traffic situation.
More information can be found on the developer’s website at http://hamptoncourtconsultation.co.uk/
We would also encourage residents to look at the information provided by the Hampton Court Rescue Campaign on its website.
