Four thousand people have signed our petition to halt the plans and over three hundred have become members, helping to shape the campaign. The community has been incredibly generous which has helped our comprehensive submission to the last round of public consultation (Regulation 19). Despite the overwhelming objections, TWBC has decided to continue with the planned destruction of our historic landscape.
But there are still major stages of the plan process to come.
The Local Plan has now been submitted for Inspection and we need to engage specialist planning barristers and consultants to assist our further representations to the Inspector, and to represent us at the public examination. To be able to challenge the well-funded and resourced proponents of the Plan on anything close to an even playing field is going to come with significant cost. Whilst we have significant funds available, we estimate needing at least another £25,000 for this examination stage.
And so we are asking our wonderful supporters for donations to help fund this vital work.
