|Thames Tunnel Information Day
Drop-in session, presentation and Q&A at Wandsworth Town Hall
The Planning Inspectorate is holding a Thames Tunnel drop-in session at Wandsworth Town Hall next week.
The event will take place on Tuesday 7 May from 10am to 5pm in the Marble Hall of the Old Town Hall.
A presentation and Q&A session take place later that day from 7.30pm to 9pm in the Council Chamber.
Thames Water's development consent application for the 'super sewer', proposed to help prevent untreated sewage flowing into the River Thames, was accepted for examination by the Inspectorate on 27 March 2013.
As a major infrastructure project the application will be determined by the Planning Inspectorate, not by local councils.
Until 28 May 2013, anyone with views about the Thames Tideway Tunnel has a period of 42 consecutive days to register with the Inspectorate as an 'interested party'.
Representations on the application must be made to the Inspectorate using the Registration and Relevant Representation Form.
This is available online at or can be obtained from the Inspectorate by calling 0303 444 5000.
During the same 42-day period (17 April - 28 May 2013), a hard copy of the full documentation will be available at the following locations between 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).
Council officials are now examining the development consent application in detail and will be making representations to the Inspectorate on behalf of local residents.
Thames Water's website includes useful links to 'summary information' for the six Wandsworth sites plus Barn Elms.
The full documentation is also available for scrutiny via the Inspectorate's website.
