Place Making


Be Richmond is the placemaking organisation for Richmond town centre. We aim to future proof the area for success, helping it to be a resilient, prosperous, vital and healthy place for people who live, work, and visit.

The Be Richmond Place Making strategy encompasses delivery of the projects identified in the Future Vision for Richmond portfolio and seeding long term legacy projects that strengthen Richmond’s position as a leading destination.

It aims to enhance public spaces with sensitive improvements that reflect the character, quality and history of Richmond, whilst considering the town’s sustainability, wellbeing and social value goals.
