I beleive that the area in Deptford Church St, a proposed site for an access shaft for the Tideway Tunnel is not the best site in the area for such work. Areas directly affected include a grade 1 listed church, a primary school as well as local businesses and would be against the sprit of the consevation area. The site also includes on of the few "green" amenity areas in the centre of a deprived inner-city area. It also affects the local authority (Lewisham) plan for the area.
During the construction phase there will be significant disruption to Deptford Church St, an important transport link affecting both Deptford and Greenwich.
Other sites are available in the area which could make use of river transport for the removal of spoil and the delivery of constrution material and plant.
On this basis I object to the current plans for Deptford Church St site as one of the access shafts.
