Fundraising

Hands Off Danbury fundraisingIn order for Hands off Danbury to fight Gladman’s appeal, we need to have our arguments represented before HM Government’s Planning Inspectorate, and this will mean hiring a specialist planning lawyer to act on our behalf. We are currently choosing the lawyer we believe will be most beneficial to our case.

The good news is that Gladman can be defeated by a well-organised and well-presented case being made to the Planning Inspectorate, and they often have been, for example in our own neighbourhood by local residents’ campaign groups in Clavering and Thaxted just in the last few years.

The bad news is that protecting our village will come at some considerable cost! We know from our friends in Clavering and Thaxted that fighting an appeal will cost tens of thousands of pounds, and that they were able to raise the majority of this through crowd funding and pledges from residents.

We sincerely hope that we will be able to convince Chelmsford City Council to reject the application. However we know from experience that Gladman will take this to appeal.

Some residents have already made pledges to donate, for which we are extremely grateful. We will now have to consider fundraising events, and other means of generating funds and we hope you will be able to assist with ideas and help.

We need funds and we need your help. Please consider a pledge or a donation, however small.
