We haven’t been posting too much for a couple of weeks, but there’s been plenty going on behind the scenes.
We are working up plans to enhance the campaign by mounting a face to face leafleting campaign in the major settlements of Fleet, Crondall, Church Crookham, Hartley Wintney, Hook, Odiham and North Warnborough, Yateley and Blackwater) to raise awareness of how much housing we are being asked to deliver and the devastation a new town will bring. We will need “boots on the ground” to help with this, so please do get in touch if you can help. We are provisionally targeting the weekend of 28/29 March for this.
On top of that, we are raising money to do a leaflet drop across the district during April to add further weight to the campaign and to ask all residents to challenge those councillors who are up for re-election to oppose Option 4: New Settlement because it will result in massive urban sprawl and open Hart up to 3,100 extra houses from Surrey Heath and Rushmoor. We will publish the names, wards, parties and contact details of all those contesting the election to make it easy for you to make your voice heard.
One supporter has also taken a look at the plans for building in Rushmoor. He is horrified at how brownfield land is being wasted at the proposed Aldershot Barracks site. We will be posting more about that in the next few days.
