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.

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 once we know that we have grounds for the JR.

Many people have already made pledges  – thank you. We will be collecting those once we know exactly what we need the money for. If you would like to make a pledge please contact us on Please specify how much you will be able to donate.

Thank you to all all came to our various fundraising events at the end of 2108 and/or sponsored Jim in the New York marathon.

Our next event is a quiz night at The Fountain on April 8. 7pm £3 entry. Raffle prizes needed please. To book your table please call The Fountain on 01303 470495

Ideas for other fundraising events very welcome!
