I have raised this with Emily Thornberry MP today – i spoke with her office and wrote to her as attached below. I am asking her to escalate this issue that will have such an awful impact on the community. Email is not the best way to communicate with Emily who prefers paper or face to face but you can try emailing – make sure you include your name and address (she has to know that you are a constituent). Or you can phone her on 020 7697 9307 between 1400 and 1700 Mondays Tuesdays and Thursdays. Or write to her c/o house of commons, SW1A 0AA. Download emilythornberry_letter.doc
113 wonderful people have now signed the petition at the Downing Street site.
Camden has received the revised Network Rail plans and will begin a new consultation on Monday for 21 days. The case officer at Camden is Gavin Sexton on 0207 974 2231. I am waiting to see what they say but i am not expecting much. When the plans are on the website on Monday i shall circulate the link.
I have also written to the Board member for communities at Network Rail Victoria Pender as attached, though she has not got back to me yet (i am chasing). Her email address is here (i think this is right). Network Rail’s handling of the community has been abysmal – high handed disdain and simple lack of recognition.Download victoria_pender_network_rail.doc Why not ring them on 0207 557 8000 and ask for Victoria’s office or Charlie her assistant ?
UPDATE 21 January
In perishing cold Stephan, Sophie, Simon, Alison, Paul and I gathered for a photo shoot for the Gazete this Sunday morning. Thanks to everyone for turnign out. I also took some video of what people thought (view it here at youtube) and will make this into a longer film in a week or two. Cllr Convery has been contacted by Network Rail to set up a meeting (at last only a month after i wrote to a board memeber) – will update further as details emerge.
UPDATE Monday 15 Jan
A holding reply from the office of Victoria Pender at Network Rail. Paul Convery has written too and the Gazette is on the case…..
