After five drop-in events; four questionnaires and three walkabouts attended by large numbers of residents from both Hampton and Hampton Hill throughout 2016, both area’s Village Plans have now been published online. The Village Plans reflect what residents think is important in their villages and what they would like to see improved.
In Hampton, 1,391 residents took part and more than 90 per cent were satisfied overall with their area as a place to live, and highlighted parks and open spaces and the level of crime and anti-social behaviour as being the most important things that make Hampton a good place to live. However, at the time 26 per cent felt that shopping in the local high street could be improved, 33 per cent said pavements could be improved, 25 per cent said road improvements and 30 per cent said traffic congestion could be eased.
An important issue for residents in Hampton and Hampton Hill is securing improvements to transport, roads and pavements. Richmond Council are pleased to say that funding for transport schemes has been secured from Transport for London (TfL) which will seek to alleviate traffic concerns in Hampton and Hampton Hill.
