A Passionate Public Meeting

Rayleigh Action Group held a public meeting on Sunday.Two of the onlineFOCUS team, Chris Black and Chris Stanley, were in the audience to listen.

The Echo have a report tonight:

CAMPAIGNERS want a judicial review to stop Rochford District Council build 2,785 homes in the next 15 years.
The call comes from a meeting of the Rayleigh Action Group meeting where more than 500 people turned out to show their displeasure at the plans.
The group would now need to raise £30,000 in less then a month to fight the housing plan, which were officially adopted by the council two weeks ago….

    Just one question, what will happen to the money if you do not raise sufficient funds ?

    Oz, as stated in the original RAG mandate any monies “left over” will ,in due course , go to a local charity ( or various local charities if it is a large amount) -that is why the Bank Account requires multiple signatures on cheques.

    CHRIS – is it possible and how much notice is required for a resident to be able to address the Council Chamber , I notice one or two private individuals did get to speak on a set subject.
    Because you are right we, the residents should do more, and I for one would like to say it out loud when a suitable topic is up for debate, thanks ….JIM.
