Following the decision by the district council to grant itself planning permission to develop Princes Parade we are looking to see if we have grounds to request a judicial review of that decision.

We are also waiting to hear if the Secretary of State will call in the application.

And we need to try to get the Princes Parade policy deleted from the draft Local Plan before it is adopted.

We will need legal advice/representation if we go ahead with the judicial review and we may need legal representation for the public inquiry if the application is called it and/or the examination in public of the Local Plan.

None of this will be cheap so we will need to do some serious fundraising.

We have a new fundraising committee working on ideas for events and we will be setting up a crowdfunding page.

Many people have already made pledges and we will be collecting those shortly. If you would like to make a pledge please contact us on
