Your opportunity to help shape plan for Putney riverside
Published: Tuesday, August 30, 2022
The council is seeking local people’s views about a proposed upgrade of Waterman’s Green near Putney Bridge.
The improvements would make the small green space on Lower Richmond Road, greener, more accessible and a more pleasant place for local people and visitors.
The work will complement the creation of a new public area being created as part of the Thames Tideway project. Waterman’s Green is also adjacent to an area already used for outdoor drinking and dining.
The council’s transport spokesperson Cllr Clare Fraser said: “Waterman’s Green has been closed off to local people for some time because of the Tideway works. We want to take the opportunity to make sure that when it reopens it is a much greener, more usable space for all to use.
“We are committed to improving Putney’s air quality, creating better pedestrian links between Putney High Street and the riverside area and making the area safer for pedestrians and those who cycle by improving the junction of the Lower Richmond Road and Putney High Street.
“We want to incorporate the views of local people into our final plans, so I would encourage residents, businesses and people who work in Putney or travel through it to share their thoughts.”
Site walkabouts will be held on September 7 and 14, for people to visit the site and find out more about the proposals. If you would like to attend, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
