We really need to boost the numbers of residents attending the appeal, especially next Tuesday the 19th May when members of the public have an opportunity to speak and give their own personal opinions.
We will be speaking during next Tuesdays proceedings as will the Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Planning Group, and we’d really appreciate your support. Of course we don’t expect you to speak (unless you want to!) BUT your attendance could have a huge impact on the planning inspector.
The public speaker slots start at 10am on Tuesday 19th May and we are tring to organise some transport if you’re unable to get there. Just send us a message and let us know.
After the public meeting on the 17th May (10am, Village Hall Annexe), we will be holding an objection writing surgery until 2pm where we’ll be on hand to help you write and submit your objections. Read our guide to objecting online.
Eric Pickles has been replaced by Greg Clark at the Department for Communities and Local Government.

We’ve added a new press release. Read it here
Gladman have submitted a new planning application for 121 houses on land off New Street. So we NEED YOUR HELP again! We all need to submit new objection letters so with that in mind we’ve drawn up a list of the ways you can help:
- Write your objection letter against the new planning application. Details here.
- Tell your friends and family (even outside of Weedon) to object against the new planning application.
- Create some nice big posters or banners and display them from the start of the current appeal hearing (12th May)
- Donations are again being accepted to help fund leaflet printing and awareness. We are operating 100% on donations so please help if you can.
Thank you again for your ongoing support, let’s rally together and see off Gladman for good!
Join us at 2pm this Sunday in the Village Hall on West Street to discuss the planning appeal and to address any questions that you may have.
We’ll also be collecting any letters you wish to send to the planning inspector and will scan & email them in advance of the deadline on the 29th January.
If you’d like help writing your letter, we can also help at the meeting.
And if you can’t attend, don’t worry. Here’s how you can help defeat this appeal:
Gladman have appealed to the planning inspector and we need your help to explain why this development is a bad idea before 29th January 2015!
Just a quick update to let you know that Gladman look set to lodge an appeal against the recent decision to refuse the application for 121 homes off New Street.
We remain determined and ready for whatever happens next so for now, we’ll keep our eyes and ears open and will bring you more news as we get it.
As if to say “we’re still here!” Gladman were today pressing ahead with the missing archaeological field surveys that were identified in the recent outline planning application refusal.
We can only speculate but we are expecting an appeal against the decision and possibly for new plans to be submitted. Keep your eyes open for updates, we’re probably going to need your help again in the not too distant future.
