A message from Stop The Shaft Chairman
Our Save Barn Elms petition is being submitted to lawyers on Tuesday 16th August. We have just a few days for supporters to register their objection to Barn Elms playing fields and surrounding area being used as a main construction site for the ‘Super Sewer’. Please encourage anyone that you know who has yet to sign the petition to visit www.stoptheshaft.org to register their objection.
We need as much public support as possible for our campaign – public opinion is of huge importance in influencing Thames Water’s decision. Barn Elms was the most opposed of all the proposed construction sites for the first phase of public consultation and we hope to maintain this status. We were successful in March in persuading Thames Water to consider alternative industrial brownfield sites and they are currently assessing Carnwath Road in South Fulham. Their final decision will be announced in September and this is one of our last chances to influence the decision and have our voice heard.
Please forward this page (URL) to friends, family and anyone with an interest in preserving London’s precious green spaces. Our website address is www.stoptheshaft.org and there is a link to our online petition on the home page.
If Thames Water go ahead with their proposal to use Barn Elms as a ‘main drive shaft’ site the impact would be enormous:
Thank you very much for your support to date, it means a huge amount. Together we will Save Barn Elms!
Chairman, Stop the Shaft
