Save Hampstead ponds!
By Elizabeth Baines
Yesterday 38 Degrees members and local campaigners handed a petition to Camden Council’s offices to stop heavy construction on Hampstead Heath and save Hampstead ponds.
38 Degrees member Mary Powell started a petition on Campaigns by You which has now been signed by 11,630 people. She wants Camden Council to reject a planning application from the City of London who want to build dams and embankments on Hampstead Heath. Mary and other local campaigners say that the works will irreversibly damage the Heath, the ponds, and the wildlife and not prevent flooding in the area.
