Greg Hands to hold Thames Tideway Tunnel Surgery

Member of Parliament for Chelsea & Fulham, Greg Hands, is to hold a constituency surgery specifically for local residents concerned about the Thames Tideway Tunnel project.

Greg will hold his surgery at St Matthew’s Church, Fulham, near Tideway’s Carnwath Road Riverside site, on Monday, 13 November. Greg hopes that this surgery will give local residents the opportunity to explain to him in person their concerns about the Thames Tideway Tunnel project and the impact that the construction is having on their everyday lives.

Greg has always been clear about his stance on the Thames Tideway Tunnel, saying: “I fought long and hard to prevent the Super Sewer from being dug at the Carnwath Road Riverside site in Fulham. I proposed alternative sites, spoke at three open meetings, lobbied Government ministers, wrote submissions, and now I continue listening to the concerns of local residents.

“However, in spite of my efforts, those of the previous Conservative council, and those of the local Conservative Sands End ward councillors, a decision was made to proceed with the project. I am now serving my constituents by striving to mitigate the impact of the construction of this sewer on local residents, and to protect the interests of south Fulham.”

In order to book an appointment at this surgery, please send an email to handsg@parliament.uk, or call 020 7219 5448.
