The Save Your Riverside action Group was set up as a result of Thames Water’s purchase of Chambers Wharf. Thames Water is considering using Chambers Wharf as one of their major construction sites for the Thames Tunnel which is often referred to as the Super Sewer.
This action group was formally created at a meeting held at Riverside Primary School on 7th April 2011 which was attended by over 110 local residents including Sir Patrick Stewart. The meeting was also attended by Riverside Ward Councillor Anood Al-Samerai. At the meeting a unanimous vote was passed in favour of fighting Thames Water’s proposals for Chambers Wharf.
The Save Your Riverside Action Group does not question the need for a cleaner river. We question Thames Water’s proposals for implementing their mandate to clean up the River Thames and the impact this would have on our community.
We believe that there is reasonable doubt that alternatives to Thames Water’s proposals have not been adequately considered and strongly believe that proposed construction sites should not be in residential areas.
