ACT NOW DONATE SAVE BURY'S GREEN BELT

URGENT: THE LEGAL FIGHT FOR BURY’S GREENBELT IS NOW UNDERWAY. PLEASE DONATE!

Earlier in the week The Friends of Bury Folk instructed our planning consultants to finalise our formal objections as recommended by our barrister.

 

We have substantial campaign funds to cover the early stages of our case but we are going to need more in the future. If you are able to contribute to our campaign fund that would be fantastic and thank you to all who have so far.

 

Donations can be made to the ‘The Friends of Bury Folk’ account directly via bank transfer so we don't pay commission on a 3rd party crowdfunding site.

 

Account name -        The Friends of Bury Folk

Account number -    31647571

Sort code -               40-15-21

Reference -               YOUR NAME

 

Cheques can also be made payable to The Friends of Bury Folk and posted to our Membership Secretary at 465 Walshaw Road, Bury, BL8 3AA.

In the meantime you can :

 

  • Become a member of Friends of Bury Folk to help keep the cause running. See our page for details

 

  • Contribute to the LOCAL PLAN to ensure it protects our greenbelt rather than just adopting the GMSF plans.  See the local plan page for more details.

 

  • Monitor planning applications in your area. What impact will it have on you and your families? How might it increase traffic and pollution? HOw will it impact the local wildlife? If planning has gone through are the builders adhering to the conditions eg protecting wildlife and surrounding area? - you can complain if you believe they aren't. You can check out applications on Bury Council planning website

 

  • Keep raising awareness of the proposals and our group with your friends, families and colleagues. Share, Share, Share!

 

If you have any help or information you can give us to support this cause, please join our facebook group or use the contact us page to get in touch.
