Hampstead Heath ponds
By India Thorogood
38 Degrees member Mary has started a Campaigns by You petition to save Hampstead Heath ponds – where the City of London want to build giant dams. Mary says they’re totally unnecessary.
Here’s what Mary says:
“Hampstead Heath is a beautiful green space close to the heart of London, freely available to everyone to enjoy. I swim daily at one of the ponds on the Heath. These ponds are now being threatened with heavy engineering work by the Heath’s custodian, the City of London. This will cause irreversible damage and is unnecessary. The planning application to do this work is now being considered by Camden Council and a wide coalition of Heath users has come together to urge Camden Council to reject this dreadful plan”

Just last week, Hampstead residents won their campaign to keep Sainsbury’s out of South End Green. If enough of us get behind Mary’s campaign, we could persuade Camden Council to save Hampstead Heath for future generations too.
If you disagree with Mary’s campaign, or there’s another issue close to your heart, you can start your own campaign here.
