Decision Day

The day has arrived and we prevailed, the Appeal was dismissed.  The
full decision is attached: in short reduction of the Local Gap and
development which will lead to the worsening or the potential
worsening of the AQMA can be given significant weight and make this
development unsustainable.

The Midi are running a story next week and there is a photo shoot on
Monday evening at 18:00 I suggest we meet in the field over the stile.
Please do come along with your victory banners.  The Midi would
welcome comments please send yours to nikki.cutler@jpress.co.uk

I would personally like to thank everybody who contributed to this
fight, with special thanks to Cllr Andy Petch, Ian Tovey, Philip Weir,
Bob Brewer and Graham Butcher.

You will still need to rank the site in the preference order at the 10
/ 11 July consultation event so it is still important to keep

supporting not only this effort but others which are important to you.
