…to stop Thames Water from devastating our neighbourhood
There are only 3 days to go until the deadline expires for Thames Water’s consultation on using Carnwath Road as a main construction site for the Super Sewer.
Sadly we have not succeeded in our attempt to have the consultation deadline extend.
The water minister Richard Benyon has written to Boris Johnson to say that it would cost too much to change the timetable and that he has no power to instruct Thames Water.
We will continue to challenge this decision but in the meantime we must focus all of our attention and energies on collecting as many responses as possible to Thames Water’s consultation before Friday.Fulham is not the right location for a giant construction site that will run 24/7 for seven years, let alone a concrete box that will ensure our riverside is blighted forever more:
- NO TO 29,000 EXTRA LORRIES ON FULHAM’S ROADS
- NO TO 4,500 CHILDREN AT SCHOOL WITHIN 1,500M OF THE SITE
- NO TO AIR POLLUTION RISKING OUR HEALTH
- NO TO CONSTRUCTION SITE RUNNING 24/7 FOR 7 YEARS
- NO TO STOPPING THE REGENERATION OF FULHAM’S RIVERSIDE
URGENT: Send us your questionnaire
Please complete our questionnaire and send it in to using the freepost address. On the afternoon of Friday 10th February a group of capaigners along with Greg Hands MP and local councillors will be handing over all your responses to a representative of Thames Water so we need to have received all completed questionnaires by then. We have produced a shorter version of the Thames Water Survey which can be completed online in less than 5 minutes, at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/fulhamsewer.
We need everyone to continue to spread the word about the threat from Thames Water and get all your friends, neighbours and work colleagues to complete the questionnaire before 10th February. Please note, you must provide your name and address so that Thames Water will formally register the correspondence. If you would prefer to complete their consultation, go to:www.thamestunnelconsultation.co.uk
So far, we have received over 1,700 completed questionnaires, a fantastic achievement, but we still need more.
What next for the campaign?
This week we are focussing solely on collecting as many completed questionnaires as possible but we have already begfun planning the next steps in our campaign and will issue another newsletter next week with more details of how you can get involved.
We can stop this but only with your support.
