Mayor faces growing political opposition to Cruise Liner decision

The Mercury has reported that calls are growing for Boris Johnson to reverse the planning permission for Greenwich’s cruise liner terminal due to concerns over pollution.

Members of EGRA say that residents remain unconvinced by the council’s reassurances about the impact on air quality, despite answers given to many questions on the matter being submitted to July’s full council meeting Ian Blore from EGRA said: “The fight goes on. We are asking the Mayor to call in the application. The main concern is over air quality as we want this to be considered more fully than we feel the council has done.

Richard Baglin from the Greenwich Society, told the Mercury: “We hope the Mayor and assembly members take the air pollution worries more seriously than Greenwich council does.”
