This Order makes two boundary changes. One is to the boundary between the county of Surrey (Spelthorne district) and Greater London (Richmond upon Thames). Parts of Stain Hill Reservoirs, lying between Staines Road East and Lower Hampton Road are transferred to Greater London, and to Richmond, uniting the Reservoirs and the area surrounding them in that county and borough. The area of land transferred is approximately 21 hectares, and it is uninhabited.
The other change is to the boundary between the London boroughs of Wandsworth and Richmond upon Thames. Part of Richmond Park is transferred to Richmond. The land transferred is located at the eastern end of the Park, and includes Silver Hill, Chohole Gate, Hyde Park Nursery, Kingsfarm Plantation, Roehampton Gate, and parts of the golf courses. It has an area of approximately 95 hectares, and a population of 6.
Consequential changes to local government electoral areas, petty sessional divisions and coroners' districts are made. No parishes are affected.
This Note and the map forming part of it is a general guide only to the areas affected, and the maps described in article 2 should be inspected for full details of the transfers. Any person may inspect the maps at all reasonable times at the offices of the council for each district or borough affected, and additionally at the offices of the Secretary of State for the Environment located in 2, Marsham Street, London SW1P 3EB.
The Local Government Area Changes Regulations 1976 contain general provisions regarding the effect of orders such as this one.
