Please help us fight the proposed overdevelopment of Capel

Save Capel would not be as strong as it is today without its amazing supporters. Thank you!

Four thousand people have signed our petition to halt the plans and over three hundred have become members, helping to shape the campaign. This has resulted in an overwhelming number of submissions to the last round of public consultation.

But there are still major stages of the plan process to come.

To be able to challenge the well-funded and resourced developers on anything close to an even playing field is going to come with significant cost. We estimate needing around £10,000 to hire experts to support our submissions to the next consultation – Regulation 19. Beyond this, to make a legal challenge, which we are more than prepared to do if needed, could cost closer to six figures.

And so we are asking our wonderful supporters for donations to help fund this vital work.

Anything you can give will help us continue our fight to protect the parish of Capel from the threat of disproportionate development

THERE ARE TWO WAYS YOU CAN DONATE:

Direct transfer to the Capel Greenbelt Protection Society bank account*

HSBC, 39 High Street, Ashford, Kent TN24 8TG.

Account name: Capel Greenbelt Protection Society.

Sort code: 40-08-32

Account number: 72266865

Donate via GoFundMe**

*We are charged for donations via GoFundMe, so if you are happy to make a direct transfer, we will benefit from your entire donation.

**GoFundMe will ask you to add a ‘tip’ to your donation. This is entirely voluntary and the suggested figure can be set to zero by clicking custom and writing in ‘0’. While GoFundMe says it doesn’t charge a platform fee, it does charge us a percentage to withdraw our funds. So it is, and should be, entirely up to you whether you think they deserve an additional tip from you.

If you would like to make a pledge, donate in a different way or indeed make a donation other than a cash donation, please email the Save Capel Executive at: SaveCapel@gmail.com

 

Thank You!!!

All monies raised will be used directly to fund activity to support the aims of Save Capel. Our constitution ensures decisions to spend monies are approved by members of the Save Capel executive with an increasing number of signatories required as expenditure increases.

When we achieve our aims, any monies still held by Save Capel will be made available for community benefit by working with Capel Parish Council and our membership to agree how they will be spent.

Any donation made in excess of £100, where the beneficiary is identifiable, will be offered a pro-rata refund based on what proportion of total monies raised remains. I.e if half the monies raised remain a 50% refund will be offered. If you would wish to be offered a refund, please ensure we can identify you from your donation (registration on GoFundMe or reference on a direct bank transfer).
