Another open floor hearing has now been called in the evening when Southwark residents can tell the planning inspectors what they think about the super sewer proposals – the plans for Chambers Wharf in particular.
Save Your Riverside (SYR) urges all of you to attend the hearing which is at 6.30pm for 7.00pm start on Monday February 3 at Glaziers Hall, 9 Montague Close, London SE1 9DD. The Hall is under London Bridge on the way to Southwark Cathedral in Montague Close – an extension of Tooley Street.
SYR chair Rita Cruise O’Brien said
“This really is the last chance for our community, who are facing years of misery from Thames Water’s plans to use Chambers Wharf as a major site for driving the super sewer tunnel, to have their say.
Residents and our local MP Simon Hughes and councillors expressed their concerns effectively at the November open floor hearing – but as that was in the daytime many people were frustrated that they could not get there.
The evening meeting on February 3 gives all of you the opportunity to express your views direct to the panel of inspectors. They will recommend what should happen to Chambers Wharf to ministers who make the final decision by the end of 2014. Everyone who is concerned about the impact of the super sewer should to turn up to say so to the panel. It is very much in the interests of individuals, families, schoolchildren, and businesses to get Thames Water’s plans changed and the more people who say so the better chance there will be of doing just that”.
FUNDING OUR DEFENCE OF THE COMMUNITY
We have raised sufficient funds to cover the costs of our excellent barrister and the most celebrated acoustic expert in the country at the Examination Hearings on Chambers Wharf in November.
But the Inspectors have called for additional hearings in January and February.
We need more funds to pay for this essential additional testimony. We have had an excellent run so far. Help us to continue!!
