Thames Tideway Tunnel

Received 29 April 2013
From Tempus Wharf Freehold Limited

Representation

TWFL is the head leaseholder of the residential development known as Tempus wharf situated close to the site at Chambers Wharf. The company is owned by 24 of the 28 leaseholders of the flats. We and the surrounding area will be significantly affected by the noise, disturbance and workings caused by drilling of the main shaft at Chambers Wharf.
TWFL submitted detailed concerns, twice, to Thames Water and suggested mitigating action. Our letters were not responded to nor are our concerns addressed or mentioned in the application. We believe the consultation was not properly carried out as differing approaches requiring different information was asked for by Mouchel and Thames Water. Our interest was shown wrongly on the forms sent to us but never corrected despite our complaints.
A copy of our detailed submission can be made available.
The major concerns were the lack of being able to view any Enviromental Impact assessment or be given information about the proposal fitting into the National Waste water Strategy nor whether funding was in place for the project or why local treatment plants options had been rejected. Hence we believe no attempt was made to properly consult.
Locally our concerns about lorry holding bays, the effect on children walking to the three schools adjoining the site, noise polution, local monitoring etc have been met with these will be dealt with by code of conduct following the granting of planning. This is not sufficent as a response to our concerns.
We ask that the application be refused until proper informed consultation has taken place.
