Thames Tideway Tunnel

I consider that the Thames Tunnel is not the best solution to the infrequent overflows, which are primarily a rainwater problem and not a sewage problem. It is also excessively costly and a burden on all Thames Water customers. Further, the planning application is desinged to over-ride and over-rule local planning policies and the local planning process, to the detriment of thousands of people. The environmental impact on the communities that would be affected both by the construction and legacy has been ignored.
