Petition in Roman Road

In case Tower Hamlets Council will not consider previous objections, we were out today collecting signatures of those attending the Roman Road market who objected to the loss of the car park, the nature of the development, or the failure to have an EIA.

A great day and over 150 signatures collected. And beautiful sunshine to.

What was remarkable was the sheer scale of the objections: from traders who fear losing their business, to local residents who can't bear the size and scale of the development and its knock on effects on local business, to those who have travelled from far afield to visit the market, but could not if there was limited parking.

If you want to object see the earlier post of where to write to. Please contact me if you would like a petition sheet, or a standard objection letter.

Let's hope Tower Hamlets do the decent thing and listen.
