URGENT CALL FOR FUNDS

POW and the Joint Parish Councils succeeded in our requests for the Secretary of State to call-in the planning application for 1800 houses at Dunsfold Aerodrome (Dunsfold New Town). This means that he will decide whether planning permission is granted after a full Public Inquiry. We now urgently need funds for the forthcoming Public Inquiry, which is scheduled to start on 18th July

As Rule 6 parties, POW and the Joint Parish Councils will be taking a leading role in the Public Inquiry to persuade a Planning Inspector and the Secretary of State that Dunsfold Park is the wrong place for the proposed development and this application should be refused. The Secretary of State’s decision will be final.

We will be the only Rule 6 parties arguing for the application to be refused, for which we have been advised we have a strong case and every chance of being successful.

In order to put up a robust case, we will need professional help to represent us:

    • A traffic consultant;
    • A planning consultant, and
    • A QC

None of these come without significant cost. There is much work to be done and appointments must be made now; we need funds to enable this. We will be running fund-raising events in the next few weeks and we hope you’ll support us generously.

In addition, any donation you can make now would be very gratefully received:

  • via Pay Pal  
  • by cheque, payable to Alfold Parish Council (Lock House Lodge, Knightons Lane, Dunsfold GU8 4NU)
  • or by BACs transfer to Alfold Parish Council’s Bank:  sort 30-94-41    account    01726933
  • For donations over £500, please email treasurer@powcampaign.org or clerk@alfoldparishcouncil.co.uk
  • This information is repeated at www.alfold.org

Thank-you!
