Lioncourt have in the last few days made a second application  (18/03100/MAO) to build 160 homes on the land West of Gold Lane. In order to galvanise all communication streams to object to this proposal, it has been decided to re-instigate the door step challenge 10. The challenge is targeted at people who do not use the internet or need some encouragement to make an objection.

With the Door Step Challenge 10, the idea is to urge people to print copies  of the Template letter below and approach 2 neighbours to the right, left and in front of them. If 30 willing people can do this then that would equate to 300 signatures. In the past a number of people have have stated they wish to do more. The challenge is on as there is an opportunity to make a real practical difference. The task should take no more than an hour. If you succeed in the task please comment below:-

With the deadline fast approaching – Wednesday 9th January 2019, it is imperative that action is taken immediately. Lioncourt believe people wont bother registering an objection over the Christmas period. In fact this is an advantage to us, as we can in addition to asking neighbours, ask friends and relations visiting over the festive period, to sign copies of the letter.  

If  you manage to get a bundle of completed letters together, can you please forward to :-
Joe Warren, 10 Darlow Drive (Hard copy template letters available at this address)
Template Letter Gold Lane Development 18 03100 MAO

The letters will be batched and sent to the Borough Council directly

Hints and tips
Be nice to your neighbours
Explain fully what the letters and objection is about
Check that both the name and address is completed properly and that it is legible
Make sure they complete the letters at the door and hand them back to you.
Friends and relatives outside the village can complete the letters
Ensure that a Mr & Mrs application is completed separately
Adults 18 and over living in the same household can sign the letters

    I notice there isn’t any reference to the gap between Bromhsm and Biddenham in this letter which is one of the msinreafibx tgsckriginsk planning application was rejected. Should this not be included? Thank you. Liz Borland.

      Sorry for the tying error above what I meant to say was the gap between Bromham and Biddenham was one of the main reasons the original planning was rejected. So shouldn’t this also be included? Thanks Liz Borland

        Hi Liz, The letters are simple generic templates. People can either write their own or use the linked letter. The most important thing is to register an an objection.

    In addition, the letter should point out the lack of infrastructure wrt policing, health care provision (hospitals and GPs), utilities and the water table, and primary schooling.
