Members of the Residents Committee and other Hamptons Residents joined forces with the wider
As a result of these presentations, your letters to the council and a concerted effort of local residents' groups by our ward councillors, the DCC last night unanimously rejected St James’s twin tracked planning application.
This is not the end of the battle as it is likely that this decision will be appealed but it is a great starting point and a clear indication of the strength that we have as a Residents Association able to present a single voice for all Hamptons Residents. The Committee would like to thank Tim Green and Michael Freter for making excellent supporting presentations to the DCC last night, all residents who turned up to endure a marathon 3½ hour meeting last night and all of you for writing to the council and supporting your Association in its campaign against this planning application.
It has involved a lot of hard work and time so far and there is little doubt that it will require more of the same, and probably money, in the coming months but with your continued support we will continue to be a force to be reckoned with.
