I am editor of the website www.bluegreenuk.com. Within this site is a growing evidence base of why we, the Blue Green Independent Expert Team, believe the current scheme is unlawful in that it has not applied Best Technical Knowledge with respect to alternative options to dealing with the Thames pollution. An opportunity may be lost if the current mono-solution approach is not assimilated in conjunction with a whole spectrum of other issues impacting Londoners such as urban heat island effects and air pollution as well as flood and drought. In terms of required infrastructure flexible enough to adapt to climate change and increased demand from Londoners (or reduced with future technical developments?), we believe a Blue + Green + Grey masterplan study for London is required to determine the best value as part of a multi-functional solution.
