Supersewer developers, Thames Tideway, pledged to be ‘good neighbours’ during the course of their five to six years work on Crossfields Green and at the meeting of the community liaison group on Monday (28 November).
The team of developers, contractors and consultants working in Deptford and at the Greenwich Pumping station set out the next stages of the works and their desire to keep the local community informed.
Residents called for more detailed and imaginative plans to make sure residents are properly engaged, and for openness and transparency on issues ranging from noise and air quality monitoring to working hours and traffic management.
Greenwich Councillor Mehboob Khan volunteered to chair this and future meetings, which are expected to be held every three months.
The meeting also heard from Lewisham Council’s Adam Platts who is starting to draw up the masterplan for Crossfields Green. The planning kicks off with informal discussions and a call for ideas in December, and consultation on a number of options around Easter with the aim of agreeing a plan by the summer 2017. The timetable – which kicks off some five years before the work is due to be completed – is dictated by the need to synchronise with the tunnel programme works. We’ll publish more detail here in the next few days.
Informal notes of the meeting are available here.
