Lidgett & Beyond has been successfully registered as a charity (reg number 1163523). This will help our focus on our charitable purposes of protecting and enhancing East Colne & links to neighbouring areas (Laneshaw Bridge & Trawden), as well as helping the fundraising (extra Gift Aid receipts) we will be doing soon so that we can fight the appeals with PendleBC against the proposed developments on The Rough.
For information, the appeals against the Council's decisions to reject the 90 and 270 house developments were submitted by Junction Property / Barton Willmore to the Planning Inspectorate on 6th August. It is currently taking 6-10 weeks for applications to be processed to go live. They have requested a public inquiry hearing to take place in February 2016 - everyone be ready to play your part in fighting to defeat the appeals!!!
Speaking of which, we'll be engaging in lots of fundraising activities to raise funds to hire our own consultants and get some legal advice. If any of you are experts or experienced in fundraising, or you have some good ideas for activities you/we could do in the period from now until Jan/Feb, then please get in touch.
LIDGETT & BEYOND says HANDS OFF THE ROUGH!
