Business services are spread throughout the borough with the main concentration in Richmond Town Centre and Teddington. However, there are also a high proportion of self employed businesses working from home. The borough provides a large number of small units – 95% of the 5,690 units employ 10 people or less. This makes RichmonduponThames a great place to develop your business. There are 379,000 square metres of offi ce space available, largely in Richmond Town Centre, Twickenham and the Hamptons. Rental ranges are between £10 and £34 per square feet, per annum.
The Borough has a population of some 195,000 people (Office of National Statistics estimate for mid 2000). It is estimated that the proportion of people of ethnic minority origin is about 8 percent and rising. Promoting equality of opportunity and eliminating discrimination is therefore central, both to the delivery of good, accessible and responsive services throughout RichmonduponThames and to the enhancement of the economic, environmental and social well-being of the whole community.
This booklet will explain who we can include on the Richmond housing register and how you can apply. We use the points scheme to decide priorities for housing. The greater your housing need, the more points you will get, which will increase your chances of getting an offer of accommodation. We work out your points on the basis of the information you give on your application form, so you should make sure you fill in the form fully.
Since August 2008 all new people approaching the Council for help, and existing service users undergoing a review of their care and support, have been assessed using the SDS model. We have achieved the ‘Putting People First’ target of 30% of people receiving a Personal Budget two years ahead of the target date. In addition, 14% of the Adult and Community Services budget is spent on personalised services, making Richmond one of only six authorities nationally spending more than 10%. And we have been assessed by the Care Quality Commission as performing excellently in offering increased choice and control to residents needing support.
Below is the list of all the firms of solicitors who provide legal in the London Borough of Richmond. They are also included in the above list, but are reproduced here if you are seeking a firm specifically within the London Borough of Richmond. For most areas of law you will have to go outside of the borough.
6.18 One area of particular interest here is that stretching from Lower Mortlake Road and along Lower Richmond Road. This latter includes the now vacated Securitas site (Site 9) at the junction with the A205. This vacant site is accompanied by vacancy in nearby office buildings (such as Forsyth House and Diamond House). The vacant office buildings appear to be in good condition. This suggests either that the area is now out of favour with occupiers (given its perceived distance from the town centre), or that there is site assembly occurring. If the latter is true, then it is likely that this excellent business site might come under intense pressure for residential development. Although it is certainly not part of the core Richmond office market, nor even of the Mortlake market, it is potentially an excellent free-standing site, with rare off-street parking.

A good example of how Circles have worked effectively with the hostel is the case of Peter, a 60-year-old entrenched predatory paedophile. Peter has convictions for sexually offending against children over a period of 25 years. His offences ranged from inappropriate touching of young girls to child abduction and rape. Due to his high risk of reoffending Peter had been made the subject of a Sex Offender Order, which contained many conditions to protect the public. Peter breached this order and was sent to prison. It was upon release from this sentence that he arrived at the hostel. It soon became evident that Peter had a low IQ. One of the conditions of Peter’s order was not to go within 40 metres of a children’s playground. When asked to demonstrate how far 40 metres was, Peter was unable to do so, therefore staff gave him a visible demonstration of the distance. However, his powers of retention were somewhat limited and all information given to him needed to be constantly reinforced. Circles were approached as it was obvious Peter’s level of risk would necessitate a very high degree of monitoring. It was also evident that he needed a high level of support if his risk was to be managed effectively. Peter was extremely receptive to the idea of a Circle as he identified loneliness, and an inability to form appropriate adult relationships, as a major trigger to his offending. Circle managers and volunteers spent time getting to know Peter in the hostel, which enabled hostel staff to share relevant information with them. Circle volunteers were very anxious to learn, although initially some members of the Circle were understandably a little naïve in their risk assessment. It was through these joint meetings that greater understanding of the needs of volunteers was identified and further training was put in place.
