The growth of retail space in Richmond over the next 12 years will be analysed as part of a study to be published this summer.

Nathaniel Lichfield and Partners will return their findings in June as they look to forecast how much space is needed in the borough’s main town centres.

The study will take into account the growing population, residents’ spending habits and visitor spending up to 2026.

Part of the study will include on-street visitor surveys in town centres such as Richmond, Twickenham, East Sheen, Teddington and Whitton.

Council cabinet member for business Councillor Gareth Evans said: “A key priority for this council is to support town centres which is why this vitally important survey is being carried out.”
