A university student wants people to submit their views on the controversial Ham Hydro project to help with his dissertation.

James Partridge, a final year environmental science student at Kingston University, wants to gauge the views of the public on the project.

Ham Hydro hopes to demolish a section of the weir to install three Archimedean screw turbines that will generate electricity for 600 homes in the area and save about 1,000-tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Power generated from the scheme, which will also include a new fish pass and sluice gate, will be sold to the National Grid with profits going towards more low carbon projects in the community.
