Right,

I've had a few conversations with people and got myself invited to the "Public Meetings about the Tidal Thames"

Two of these are being held in March, one on the 11th March at the Museum in Docklands, No 1 Warehouse, London, E14 4AL and the second on the 18 March at London Rowing Club, Embankment, London, SW15 1LB. Both start at 1830.

I'm planning on attending the London Rowing Club Meeting to raise this further. As far as I can tell its an open invite with no need to book so extra support would be appreciated!

If anybody has any specific examples they would feel be useful please let me know. I suspect arguements that put forward a case that it would affect a commercial undertaking would be given a much higher priority at these meetings over a leisure arguement.

Chris

So what you seem to be saying is that in the main its commercial users causing most of the agro. (Clarkson an exception!!) Which seems about right
