People will look back in amazement at this foolish cruise terminal decision

Caroline Pidgeon, Leader of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Group, commenting on the Mayor’s decision this week to give the go ahead for a cruise liner terminal at Enderby Wharf in Greenwich, said:

“The decision by Greenwich Council and now the Mayor of London to reject using off shore power for this planning application is highly regrettable.

“In years to come I believe people will look back in amazement at the foolish decision by Greenwich Council and the Mayor of London to give the go ahead to a cruise liner operating in a such a polluting way when far less polluting alternatives are available for powering cruise ships when berthed.”
