Crunch time – we need your help fundraising!
Mallard Pass’s application should have been submitted by now to the Planning Inspectorate. Once it’s been accepted, it will enter the pre-examination phase in the New Year, and then the full examination in the spring. It’s then you have the opportunity to put your views across to the PI – they are the examining authority who will submit the final recommendation to the Secretary of State.
The documentation from the application will be immense and complex. To stand the best possible chance of defeating Mallard Pass, we require the expertise of specialists to identify the relevant legal and material planning arguments, articulating them in our submissions and during the hearings. We therefore intend to use the services of a Planning Consultant and a Junior Barrister to ensure we can represent the community effectively, if we can raise enough funds. This is where YOU come in, and we can’t do this without your HELP. We need to raise £15,000. Timing is important, so please donate ASAP either via:
• GoFundMe page: https://gofund.me/364ca897, or search Mallard Pass Action Group on the GoFundMe website
• BACs to Mallard Pass Action Group, Account no. 63032162, Sort Code 30-98-97
• Write a cheque to ‘Mallard Pass Action Group’. Email the group at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for collection/delivery.
Note: Please do not give cash to anyone coming to your door. We want to ensure your donation reaches us safely and does not get into the wrong hands.
Thank you to everyone that has donated so far, we are extremely grateful. We want to assure you the funds will be used very wisely. Should there be any remaining at the end of the planning process, we will contact all supporters by whatever means available to us and offer some options for redistribution into community projects or specific charities.
