On Wednesday 26th August the Mayor is making a planning decision as to whether to approve the Enderby Cruise terminal in Greenwich.
Local residents have been fighting against the building of the new terminal, and have continued fighting despite the application being approved by Greenwich Borough Council. As only the Mayor has the power to overturn this decision, Wednesday is the final chance for local residents to be protected from the noise and significant air pollution that would result from the opening of the terminal.
Elaine Bagshaw, Tower Hamlets Liberal Democrats spokesperson and candidate in the recent by-election for Mayor, said: “Tower Hamlets already ranks as one of the worst boroughs for air pollution, and this development will only make things worse for people living here. All of us that live here in the borough suffer due to air pollution, that leads to respiratory problems and a heavier burden on our health services.
I hope Boris Johnson makes the right decision on Wednesday to stop the current plans for the Enderby Cruise terminal.”
