The Wapping Summer Shindig is on Saturday July 7 from 12-7pm.
Here are the designs for the vent pipes at Shadwell Park. Tideway will submit its planning application to Tower Hamlets Council in the summer as it needs planning consent for the pipes to be erected. The designs are not to scale and the main 2, as shown in the first slide will be 30 feet high. Another 3 will also be built.
The History of Wapping Trust is running a film show on Thursday March 22 about the anniversary of the Festival of Britain
at Raines House, Raine St.
Film will be followed by a talk given by Ray Newton.
All welcome, from 7pm.
In October last year the Turk’s Head and Shadwell Basin hosted a planning weekend at Shadwell Basin to seek local residents’ views on Tower Hamlets Council’s plans for Shadwell Park (King Edward Memorial Park) following the completion, in 2022, of the Thames Tideway works.
The results of that meeting can be seen in the report below and reached markedly different conclusions to those presented by Tower Hamlets. Both plans can be seen in the report. Whilst walking around the park, it also became apparent that the air vent leading down to the Rotherhithe Tunnel was negatively affecting the air quality of the park, in addition to the pollution coming from the Highway which runs along its northern boundary. The Turk’s Head has contacted Transport for London, which owns the air vent and the Mayor of London with our concerns.
As you can see from the correspondence, air monitoring seems to be a lengthy process and until then, our charity advises not to use the park and join our campaign to get it cleaned up.
We are asking people to write to the Mayor of London to ask him to pressurise TfL to treat the air vent and stop polluting the park.
We are asking that people write to the Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs to make sure that air quality around the vent is monitored properly and exceedances of EU limits for nitrogen dioxide be published.
