Can you afford five minutes of your time to save our park?

The battle to save King Edward Memorial Park is a long one. It is not over yet and your park needs your help to save it from destruction by annoying people in suits Thames Water.

The other week I attended and other residents attended an open meeting held by the Planning Inspectorate at Glamis Hall. The Planning Inspectorate (PINs) is an impartial government agency who are responsible for operating the planning process for the Thames Tideway Tunnel aka the ‘super sewer’.

Or as Carl puts it “they are a fresh pair of eyes”. I had a chat with some of the staff outside and found them to be intelligent, reasonable people. Exactly the opposite of Thames Water suits.

The latest money making scheme planning application by Thames Water has been submitted and all decisions about it will be made by the PINs. That’s the way it works so we have to follow the process.

How do I register to help Save King Edward Memorial Park?

You have until midnight on Tuesday 28th May 2013 to register as an interested party with PINs.  You can do that by clicking this link.

I just registered with PINs and timed the amount of time it took me to read the form, fill in my personal details and outline the issues I have with the proposal and the consultation process.

Can you afford five minutes of your time to save our park?

It took my five minutes and thirty seconds from start to finish. That’s all.

You don’t have to write an essay, just a brief summary of what you think. Keep it short, sharp and to the point.

That’s all you have to do. But you do need to register with PINs now to have a say later. If you don’t register then your voice will not be heard.
