Local environmental consultations Feb - March 2018
Kingston Environment Forum is responding to these consultation on behalf of its network of groups, based on previous responses and KEF policies, but also requests individuals and local green groups to respond, the more the better for our environment, local and city-wide:
On the draft London Plan: https://www.london.gov.uk/what-we-do/planning/london-plan/new-london-plan, especially the environmental sections (you can choose which sections to comment on) by Friday 2 March. For some ideas, see London Food Link’s summary document, https://www.sustainweb.org/londonfoodlink/policy/ highlighting opportunities to improve the health and sustainability of the capital's food system, calling more recognition of the importance of food growing in London.
On Kingston’s Riverside SPD consultation https://www.kingston.gov.uk/riverside by 18 March: “your opportunity to comment and tell us what you think about the vision and proposals outlined.” Simple multiple choice answers with opportunities for further comment on your particular concerns https://www.kingstonconversations.co.uk/riverside.
On Heathrow expansion www.heathrowconsultation.com by 28 March, yet again on fairly restricted issues: “Our consultations are about enabling you to help shape both our expansion plans for Heathrow and the way we manage airspace at an early stage”. You don’t have to answer every question and there is plenty of space to make your own comments if you like. There are also some consultation events https://www.heathrowconsultation.com/events/ and a public meeting. jointly held by Richmond Park MP Zac Goldsmith and Putney MP Justine Greening, on Heathrow’s plans for expansion, at 7.00pm on Thursday 1 March at Community Church, Werter Road, Putney. Recommended sources of info and arguments include Richmond Heathrow Campaign’s info http://www.richmondheathrowcampaign.org/, HACAN http://hacan.org.uk and Plane Stupid http://www.planestupid.com/.
