You may be aware that Thames Water want to site a "super sewer" in Furnival Gardens, and appear intent on overriding the Council's wishes to stop them. I have just been down to Furnival Gardens, having never been there before, and was absolutely amazed by the place. See pics below. It is quite simply fantastic. And I'm calling on you to support the Council in their fight to save it.
There can be few places in London, least of all zone 2, with views like these on the Thames with the exception of the SouthBank in central London. And thats the point - with Furnival Gardens we don't need to go into the centre. It's quiet, clean and has stunning views. It even has nice pubs and rowing clubs next to it!
If Thames Water need to build new sewage pipes let them build them on brown field sites with derelict properties or further into central London that does not have a park like Furnival Gardens to ruin. They could of course have built it on a pumping station that they owned, 5 minutes walk from the Gardens. But they sold it to developers to be turned into penthouse flats instead, and think that we should now give up our park.
I ask you to do two things reader -
1 - visit Furnival Gardens if you never have before, I suspect there are many H&F residents who, like me, simply dont know that we have this on our doorstep
2 - sign this petition against Thames Water's plans and support the Council's fight to save the park.
