Thames Water consultation closes
As the Thames Water consultation deadline loomed on Friday 10th February, SSF campaigners handed over more than 2,500 survey responses to Thames Water representative Phil Stride at an event on the corner of Wandsworth Bridge Road and Carnwath Road.
SSF representative were joined by pupils from Thomas’s School, Greg Hands MP, Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh (Leader, LBH&F) and Cllr Nick Botterill (Deputy Leader, LBH&F).
As Phil Stride arrived to receive our responses, children and politicians joined in a rousing chant of “No to the sewer!” before handing over boxes full of completed surveys. You can read a report from the H&F Chronicle here.
We are still counting up and tallying the final few surveys which arrived late in the day but we expect to be well over 2,600. In comparison, during the phase 1 consultation, Barn Elms residents submitted just over 600 survey responses.
What can you do?
The immediate priority is to maintain as much pressure as possible on the politicians so we want as many people as possible to complete one of our pre-addressed postcards to send to Greg Hands MP and Boris Johnson. Early next week we will let you know about our future plans.
In the meantime if you would like to get involved in the campaign or would like to contribute any suggestions or ideas please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
