We are pleased to provide an update on progress with the Hampton Pool Development Project planning application following consideration by the Greater London Authority (GLA) on 9th September 2019.

The GLA has completed its Stage 1 review and accepts that our application meets the “very special circumstances” set out for permitted development on Metropolitan Open Land as outlined in the London Plan and draft London Plan policies. This means that the application can now move forward to be considered by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames Planning Committee.

In addition to considering the documentation associated with the planning submission, the GLA decision has been informed by the independent viability study from Aspinall Verdi which concluded in favour of the development. The report was commissioned by London Borough of Richmond upon Thames Planning Department.

The GLA's review has raised certain queries about the roof, energy use, water and transport, details of which are being provided in response.

Our planning application should now move forward for consideration by the Planning Committee, and if approved will go back to the GLA for the Stage 2 approval.

If you have any queries regarding the building development, have any comments or if you would like further information, please email the Building Development Team: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
