This week (12th February) I will be submitting my final written representation to the inquiry into the Thames Tideway Tunnel.
After four months of relentless campaigning from local campaign groups and residents, I believe there are now real signs that the Planning Inspectorate is seriously considering the arguments made by all those who think that Thames Water must fundamentally change their current super-sewer plans. I have called on the examiners now to recommend to ministers that they should not approve the present plans and should either reject them completely or insist that alternative plans are drawn up.
If you want to have your voice heard or raise any issues, please get in touch with me and let me know.
I will be working with local campaign groups like Save Your Riverside and others, to make sure Thames Water rethink their proposal and that we get a better deal for local residents and a better deal for the environment.
