HAVE YOUR SAY
Bedford Borough Council plans to hold a consultation period from the end of May and this will last until July 14th.
If you feel strongly about their proposals you should definitely write and have your say to:
MR PAUL ROWLAND
DIRECTOR OF PLANNING
ST PAUL'S SQUARE
PLEASE QUOTE: PROPOSED GYPSY SITE, MILTON ROAD, CLAPHAM.
You can also email the council at: email@example.com
Definitely ask for an acknowledgment from them to say that they have received it.
Please also email us to let us know you have written (see useful contacts).
Your objection should be strictly on planning grounds outlined on the web page REASONS FOR OBJECTION, but write it in your own words and also put in any other good reasons you can think of (must be on planning grounds).
On no account should you make any remarks that the Council term as racist.
As an example, if you say you fear crime may increase in the area, THEN THAT IS RACIST!
If you say you think there will be a lot of rubbish around, THEN THAT IS RACIST!
If you say you fear for your safety or for your children, THEN THAT IS RACIST!
DON'T GIVE THE COUNCIL THE OPPORTUNITY TO BIN YOUR PROTEST AND DISCOUNT IT
When a Gypsy site was put forward for Stotfold an amazing 3,100 letters from a total of 3,500 were binned. UNBELIEVABLE, BUT TRUE!
And don't forget to ask for the acknowledgment that your thoughts have been taken into account.
MAKE YOUR SAY COUNT!
