Residents and businesses who want to get ready for Rugby World Cup 2015 are reminded that there are still two community briefings in July.
Over the past two weeks, Richmond Council, in partnership with the England Rugby 2015 and the Rugby Football Union (RFU), have held two briefing events for Businesses and two for residents in St Margarets and those who live directly around the Stadium. The briefings provide attendees with details on the delivery plans to stage this major sporting event safely and successfully, with minimal disruption.
Attendees will be given updates on the Tournament, transport plan and property access implications, Fanzone, community safety, licencing and street cleansing. Representatives from the Council, England Rugby 2015, the RFU and local Police will also be in attendance.
The presentation and exhibition boards are available online at:www.richmond.gov.uk/rugby_world_cup
Cllr Pamela Fleming, Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Environment, Business and Communities, said:
“We are working hard, with the Tournament organisers, Transport for London and neighbouring boroughs to try and minimise this disruption and help people understand the benefits that hosting such a prestigious event will bring.
“I hope as many people as possible will attend a briefing, or sign up to receive our e-newsletter providing regular information on local activities and news relating to Rugby World Cup 2015.”
