Many residents who live in the parts of these wards consider themselves part of Teddington – quite understandably considering that their address points to this. The proposal is to tweak these names to reduce any confusion concerning ward membership – the proposed names are “Hampton Wick and South Teddington” and “Hampton Hill and North West Teddington” respectively.
You can have your say by using this online form – feel free to add your opinion and comments on the issue. This public opinion will be taken into account at a special meeting in October where a majority of two-thirds of councillors must agree with each proposal for it to pass. Residents have until 11th September to register their views.
