Planning Application - Police Station Station Road

The planning application for the police station site at 60-68 Station Road was lodged in mid-February (following on from the proposals discussed in Linda's thread from December). All docs and details are on Richmond Borough website under 16/0606/FUL.

There has been some amendment to the plan since the proposal stage, but the basic outline remains:

  • Retention of former police station building with partial demolition of the rear wings.
  • Demolition of the rear garages.
  • Construction of 28 residential units (4 x 1 bed, 7 x 2 bed, 10 x 3 bed and 7 x 4 bed) - details below.
  • Underground car park for 40 cars, plus 3 visitor parking bays (at street level).

The residential units are located as follows:

  • 6 apartments in the former police station
  • 2 courtyard houses at the rear of the police station
  • 6 apartments in a new build apartment block fronting Station Road
  • 14 mews and townhouses around a central courtyard.

Two units (1 x 1 bed, and 1 x 2 bed) will be provided in accordance with the Council's Affordable Housing requirements (see para 6.46 of the Planning Statement.)

There is a very handy 3D image in the Daylight and Sunlight Report which provides overall context. (That report summarises the expected daylight impact on the Queens Bench cottages in paras 6.23 onwards; see also paras 6.83 onwards of the Planning Statement).Here's the street elevation:

There is a shedload of material in the application, and I've tried to keep the above brief and neutral.If you see something interesting in the materials, try to link to or reference it.

I haven't determined this definitively, but comments opened on 22 February and I understand are open for 3 weeks, i.e. Monday March 14 (please correct me if that's wrong).

Yes I meant comments on the planning portal - there are 2 supporting, and I think now 11 objections. I do wonder if people are aware of it (i.e. I only did because i'm on the Peoples Network).. 

I spoke to the Planning Officer, responsible, today and he confirmed they will accept comments through April and probably into May, certainly right up until the hearing.  It's not going to be quick as there are a lot of points the developer has to answer and address before it's even going to be penciled in. 

I think he said over 120 households were notified and that it appeared in the R&T on 22 Feb, I sure missed it!

Wonder exactly which 120 cos nobody on here or on the list of people who have commented on Richmond site seems go hav been...

No idea who the +-120 are, but I know a man who does!

Simon Graham-Smith is the Planning Officer responsible and he said he will be more than happy to supply the list of all those mailed to anyone who wants it.  Give him a call or email him for a copy of the list: s.graham-smith@richmond.gov.uk

We received notification late last year informing us of the 7 December 2015 meeting to view plans and that an application would be going in following the meeting.  But nothing else since apart from reading on this site regularly to keep updated with the latest.

I have emailed him, so let's see if I get a response.  Watch this space

He responded with the 120 addresses, a lot of which were to Beaver Close which is a good distance away.  He explained that by law it has to be notified in the local press (which he said had been done) along with a notice outside the said building.  I responded that since the local paper is not longer delivered to my door I read the R&T online and this doesn't cover planning applications, I haven't seen a notice outside the police station but will have a proper look tomorrow.  I still think the immediate side roads to the site should have been notified, which I mentioned when I responded as they will most definitely be affected

Thanks Janice. Much appreciated

I agree with Janice and think that the side roads as well as further down Station Road towards the High Street should have been included in the list since it is a huge development on a building that has been part of Hampton for years and therefore is part of our history and will have an impact on many more residents who have lived and enjoyed the village for many years. We also don't receive a copy of the R&T Times anymore but luckily were invited to attend the initial meeting in December to view the plans.

I have just heard back from Mr Graham-Smith who said the Council sent out more letters than was necessary, he also told me that it is on R&T website, not that I could find it, on page 36.  I did have my walk about today and looked for the sign outside the police station.  It is there but very obscure you would walk past it and not see it.  It is just beyond the actual police building by the end of the first dropped curb.  Not many people would see it as it is well past the shops.


He appears to be a very helpful person, I think the problem is LBRUT's interests and concerns are not the same as ours, they have perhaps done more than their statutory duties require, however that doesn't mean that's enough.  The worrying thing is (apart from a short note from Gareth) where are our Councillors and what are they doing, all seems a bit quite on that front, wonder why?
