Don't dump on Deptford's heart update

Oliver Seal of DDDH writes:

The application form submitted by Thames Water has been accepted by the planning inspectorate. Please see the Thames Water press release below.

What we need to do:
1) Everyone needs to register to the planning inspectorate.  You can do this online or by phone and post.  You must do this by 28th May 2013.  If you are wanting to register by post you have to start the process in time to receive the form and send it back before 28th May 2013.
2) Please copy any MPs and politicians you think it would be useful to and ask them to register in our favour
3) We must visit as many of the drop in centres as possible (sadly there is not one in Deptford) but we are fighting this.  The details of this are outlined below
4) Join our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/DontDumpOnDeptfordsHeart I will be adding reminders of events and important campaign dates to this page.  I will also try to email too of course!
5) Watch out for a public meeting of our own that we are organising – this will be in the next two or three weeks. 

Thames Water's sham of a consultation was just the end of the beginning.  

This is our real fight so please mobilise again and tell all your friends and neighbours to get behind this.

Update 26 April: see the Deptford Dame for later but more coherent posting.



PRESS RELEASE

Proposed Thames Tideway Tunnel – ‘Supersewer’

Find out how to register and make a representation about the application
  
From today, (Wednesday 17 April 2013) members of the public are invited to register with the Planning Inspectorate and make a representation about the application for the Thames Tideway Tunnel proposal.
The Planning Inspectorate accepted for examination, the application from Thames Water Utilities Ltd for Development Consent for the Thames Tideway Tunnel (‘Supersewer’) on 27 March. The public and those interested in the proposal can register with The Planning Inspectorate between 17 April 2013 and 28 May 2013.
People can register easily online at: http://infrastructure.planningportal.gov.uk/projects/london/thames-tideway-tunnel/.
Alternatively, they may call the Inspectorate’s helpline: 0303 444 5000 for a printed registration form, which must be completed and returned by 28 May 2013.


Sir Michael Pitt, The Planning Inspectorate’s Chief Executive, said.  “This is an opportunity for people to play a part in the planning process and influence the outcome. We encourage people to get involved by registering as an interested party. By doing so, people will be able to participate fully in the examination of this proposal”.
Those who register will be entitled to provide evidence in writing to support their representation, to attend the Preliminary Meeting, to request an open floor hearing and to speak at other hearings where appropriate.
To help people understand how the process works, Planning Inspectorate staff will be holding drop-in events and presentations in the local area to answer questions and explain how to register and make a representation about the application.
