Updates on the shafting of King Edward Memorial Park

Very good post from our local Conservative Party on the forthcoming destruction of King Edward Memorial Park. You can read the original post here.

Here are some edited highlights from the meeting St. Katharine’s & Wapping Conservatives had with the Thames Tunnel suits.

They have requested clarification on these points:

  • The exact configuration of the park (sports facilities etc) during the work.
  • Whether the D3 bus route will be affected.
  • Where the Thames Path will divert.
  • How many street parking spaces will be lost during the work, if any.
  • Who attended the first steering group meeting on 12 March?

Concern was also expressed about the number of vehicle movements during construction.

Love Wapping has previously highlighted the issue of traffic movements.

You can also download and read the Thames Water KEMP Project Site Summary (PDF format) on the St. Katharine’s & Wapping Conservatives site.

Going through the motions

Seems Thames Water are going to set up a ‘Community Liaison Working Group’ [LW Comment: Probably only because they have to and no other reason.] 

Thames Water have also created a website about the King Edward Memorial Park Foreshore (Wapping) as they like to call it.

According to this “The first meeting of the King Edward Memorial Park Foreshore Community Liaison Working Group will take place in 2016, before construction starts. If you are interested in being involved or would like to find out more call our helpline on 0800 0721 086.”

Why not give them a call?

Profit the only motive

Bottom line is that our wonderful KEMP is going to be destroyed by a global corporation whose only interest is the profits of their shareholders and have hoodwinked Londoners into getting an out-dated scheme approved.

Nice work if you can get it – and have a complete lack of morals.

Thanks Julia!

Many thanks to Cllr. Julia Dockerill and the Conservative team for keeping an eye on this lot.
