Ignoring Public Opinion
The Garden Bridge Trust claim to have carried out widespread public consultation and engagement, yet in their own skewed poll they found out 90% of respondents had “never heard of” to knowing “a little” about their development.
They have continually refused to engage with local residents, opponents of their scheme and experts who disagree with them. They barely exist outside of press releases and carefully worded statements and have never shown any interest in engaging London residents.
As opposition has exponentially grown they have become more enclosed in their Somerset House office, arrogantly ignoring growing protest at their private development and constantly failing to answer legitimate questions about their project, funding and processes.
