REMINDER TO SIGN THE HISTORIC GASHOLDERS PETITION BY 1 JANUARY 2017

EEWG was not allowed to present the previous petitions to a Tower Hamlets full council meeting because a rule forbids the presentation of petitions relating to sites which may be subject to a planning application. So having a new petition in response to the Council’s Local Plan consultation (deadline for comments: 2 January 2017) is our only option and last chance.

The previous signed petitions could not be sent in response to the consultation because they were also addressed to National Grid. As National Grid is determined to demolish all three holders (and the number 1 at Poplar has just been recorded by archaeologists prior to demolition) a last effort has to be made with Tower Hamlets – in the hope that they will negotiate retention with National Grid.

So far only 300 people have signed the petition for all three historic gasholders and we obviously need more people to sign by 1 January 2017..

PLEASE LOOK AGAIN AT THE GASHOLDER SPECIAL NEWSLETTER AND DO YOUR BEST TO SIGN THE ONLINE PETITION AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO SIGN.

Tower Hamlets is having its built heritage systematically regenerated out of existence. There is very little left in Poplar. Bethnal Green needlessly lost its remarkable Bonner Primary School; the two historic gasholders by the canal are almost certain to be demolished unless thousands sign the historic gasholders petition; and one of its finest buildings, the former London Chest Hospital, is losing its south wing and the main building will lose its original roof and ventilation tower, unless thousands sign the Chest Hospital petition.
