DON'T FILL IN CANADA WATER
Plans to build a huge shopping centre at Canada Water have sparked an outcry in Rotherhithe. Angry residents fear the area will become another Oxford Street.
Radical changes suggested by consultants to Southwark Council include:
THese ideas would involve grabbing all the land
for the sprawling shopping centre. The consultants suggest
filling in Canada Water, which will destroy the wildlife, peace
and open spaces.
Local resident Stephen Boyer says: "These ideas must be stopped. People love the wildlife sanctuary and the quiet, and don't want to see a huge development that does not suit the area. We must not destroy the environment."
The Rotherhithe New Labour Action Team is opposed to these plans. A consultation is underway. Make your voice heard before it is too late.
