Perry Riding – support for planning application

RDA logo for Perry Riding

 

 

 

Numerous attempts over the past eight years to locate a suitable site to build a new sustainable centre where the Perry Group can be guaranteed a future and many other groups and individuals can benefit.

A planning application has now been lodged for a site kindly put forward by the Willey Estates in Much Wenlock. Full details are available on the Shropshire council planning web page, and there are more details on the new Cavalier Centre website by clicking here.

If you would like to show your support please do so by lodging a supporting comment on the planning site, with a plan to gather 2,000 if possible. It involves registering first and then being e mailled back. It is a little time consuming but will be invaluable to the cause if you and any friends and supporters can spare the time to do it:

Go to www.shropshire.gov.uk and on the home page look at the column on the left and click on Environment and Planning.

You will next see a page with three main headings – Planning, Environment, Recycling and Rubbish.

Go to the Planning list and at the top Click on Online Planning Register.

The next page invites you to find or comment on an application.  Complete the Text Box with 14/02127/FUL and enter. Then follow the simple instructions to leave comments and I hope your SUPPORT for the application.
