Save KEMP – Our Aims
Save KEMP (King Edward Memorial Park) is a community action group based in Tower Hamlets, east London, which is fighting to save the only park left in our part of the borough from destruction by Thames Water. Tower Hamlets is a much built up area and green spaces here are a necessity, not a luxury. Help us save KEMP for our kids and for generations to come. What Save KEMP stands for:
• We DO agree that the River Thames needs to be improved
• We do NOT agree with Thames Water targeting public parks and green spaces
• We believe Thames Water should use brownfield sites to construct their sewer
• We believe working on King Edward Park foreshore and leaving a sewer ventilation system in the front of the park will destroy our park forever
There is a viable alternative that costs no more – Thames Water must build on brownfield land!
