A proposal to develop on the site of a former multi-use day centre previously owned by the Council has received the go-ahead.

The developer is a local Housing Association, the Richmond Housing Partnership which have taken up the challenge of making the best use of the derelict site.

The proposal is for the erection of one four-storey building and one two-storey building to provide 12 affordable housing units (seven Supported Living units and five London Living Rent units), plus one residential support unit. The removal of existing vehicular access; landscaping including communal amenity space and ecological enhancement area; erection of ancillary structures including secure cycle and refuse storage structures.

The proposal is in keeping with the local plan, using a small space well. Additionally, the proposal is for 100 per cent social housing, making a small step towards the Richmond targets.
