Want to protect the biodiversity of Seething Wells filter beds?

Then email Environment minister Lord Zac Goldsmith and ask him to back amendment 94 to the Environment Bill which is being debated later today (Monday) in the House of Lords, says St Mark’s ward councillor Liz Green.

Liz says the biodiversity at the filter beds along the Portsmouth Road in Surbiton is being threatened by the actions of it owner Cascina who have cleared the land of shrubs and trees and sprayed it with pesticide. The amendment to the bill, proposed by Tolworth peer Lord Oates, introduces a biodiversity contravention notice which would give Kingston Council the powers it needs to protect the site, she said.

“We’re asking residents to email Zac in their hundreds to show him how important this amendment is to sites like Seething Wells.”

You can email Zac at zac@zacgoldsmith.com copying Liz in at liz.green@kingston.gov.uk Include your name and address.

Seething Wells Filter Beds played a key role in the fight against cholera in the 1800s. Once Thames Water stopped using the site over 30 years ago it became a haven for wildlife before it was taken over by Cascina which wants to develop the area.
