Just got back from Stratford District Council’s meeting of their Regulatory Committee. There was tension in the room as dozens of campaigners were kept silent and kept waiting while the councillors deliberated legal advice.

The Monitoring Officer must decide quickly – hopefully next week.
Thanks to everyone who turned out and showed their opposition to the development
