Just over one week left to get your objection in, don’t miss it; there’s no second chance! The planning consultants say the number of objections is a factor the planners consider, lets make it a huge number!

We’ve almost reached our target of 200 objections, this is great news but why not one last push to get it over 250.

The petition has reached nearly 300 and counting, a letter is being sent today with a copy of the petition to Sir James Ackroyd to show him the strength of feeling in the village.

The ongoing fight will of course cost money for professional help and sundry expenses; we currently have £4,000 in our fighting fund, but we’ll need more. There’s a collecting box in the PO or cheques can be sent to the Parish Council who are administering the fund for us.

Perhaps you can organise a fund raising event, coffee mornings for example?


WEB SITE NOW LAUNCHED! it will develop as our fight goes on.


HANDS OFF HAMPSTHWAITE VILLAGE Facebook page has proved a very effective tool.

 Final Action

There will be an information point outside the PO on Saturday from 0930. There will be objection forms there for anyone needing help. This should be a rallying point, please turn up to support our volunteers or better still volunteer to help man the stall

Drop in sessions will take place in the Memorial Hall for those requiring help with an online objection

Friday 18th 1000-1200 & 1700-1900

Saturday 19th 100-1200

More posters urging people to object will go up on Friday night.

Stop Press. The deadline for objecting to Brookfield Garth has been extended to September 27th.

A meeting has been arranged with our MP to discuss our fight with the planners, a team from the PC and the Action Group will meet Andrew Jones early in September.

We are liaising with other village protest groups in the district to find common areas where we can work together and perhaps pool resources.

Let’s beat this attempt to destroy Hampsthwaite
