Greg Hands M.P. has praised local residents’ groups and the owners of Hurlingham & Whiffen Wharf and Carnwath Road Industrial Estate, who have worked together to produce a simplified version of the Super Sewer consultation form.
Many of those completing Thames Water’s online form have found it confusing and excessively long. This independent version is much more straightforward and asks a series of simple questions about the Carnwath Road site. It has been reviewed by legal experts to ensure that anyone using it has their views counted in exactly the same way as those filling in the official form. On completion, the organisers send the form directly to Thames Water.
All residents can respond using the simplified online form here: www.surveymonkey.com/s/fulhamsewer
A two-page hardcopy version is also being circulated with a freepost address. The closing date for the consultation is 10 February 2012.
Commenting, Greg Hands M.P. said: “The only way to stop Thames Water is for us to say ‘No’. Silent opposition will be ignored – if you want to save Carnwath Road, you have to respond to the consultation.
“Lots of constituents have told me they find the official website complicated. This is a fantastic initiative by local residents to make the process easier, by breaking it down to the essentials. You don’t need a degree in engineering to know that a close-knit residential area is the wrong place for massive excavation works.
“I know that many people are intending to respond, but haven’t got around to it yet. This new form makes it easy – please do it now.”
