Michele Hanson: "What is a “Development Forum”? Is it a consultation? I went to one last week, about the silly £15m plan to build dams on Hampstead Heath ... The developers seemed to think their dams were in the can,spoke to us as if we were aged 10 and the class dunces, and we may as well have addressed our complaints and suggestions to my dog's bottom."
Deborah Moggach: "Just to add another voice to the growing opposition to the City of London's insane plan to dam the ponds on Hampstead Heath. This month we have had torrential rain and the worst floods in decades and not one single house, downstream of the Heath, has been affected in any way."

The City of London has criticised heavy lorry movements for buildng work near the Heath but now proposes far worse itself. The red lines are where the lorries will drive day after day and the larger areas are where building work will be done. The yellow blobs mark where excavations will be made to extract soil for the new dams.
The petition against the dam plan has over 12,000 supporters. Help us raise the number significantly before Camden makes its planning decision in October
