The Planning Inspectorate – who are making the decision on the Thames Tunnel – will be holding a public hearing tonight (5th February) from 8pm in the Deptford Lounge. The hearing is one of the final opportunities for local people to speak out against Thames Water’s plans that will have a serious impact on our community.
There will be a friendly demonstration from 7:30pm outside the entrance of the Deptford Lounge. Please come and join in if you can. And then come into the hearing if you want to say something to influence the Inspectorate to turn down Thames Water's proposals.
It's not just about saving the green, it's about the three year partial closure of Deptford Church Street that will cause major traffic congestion and doubly increase pollution and noise for all local residents, especially Crossfields.
