Westminster Council has given Thames Water permission to dig up Westbourne Green, despite Westbourne councillors David Boothroyd, Adam Hug and Papya Qureshi firmly objecting. But after hearing the councillors say how many local people used the Green, the Council told Thames Water that they must help users find alternative sites.
Thames Water have now asked an independent consultant to survey the local community about “what kinds of other open spaces and recreational facilities they know about in the area, and to get from them suggestions about what Optimise might do to help them with alternative places to use for recreation during the period that the Green is closed.”
There is an online questionnaire, which should take around 10 minutes or so to complete:
The deadline for completion of the questionnaire is 12 noon on Thursday 19 September.
