Dear Friends
As promised, we have now produced a guidance note on how to object to the Maltkiln Village development proposed by Oakgate Ltd. With the help of our planning consultant we have reviewed the application and have identified a number of sound planning reasons for objecting to this application. We can not stress enough how important it is that we object to this application. Whilst there is no local plan in place we are at risk of these pesky developers getting their applications approved via the back door which is left wide open by Harrogate Planners.
The number of objections is not limited to one per household. Everyone in your household is entitled to object. For this reason we have attached an OBJECT LETTER TEMPLATE so that you can print off extra copies. We have also attached a WORD file of the template letter so that you can amend and make it your own – remembering that letters written in you own words carry more weight.
The action group may also be hand delivering the guidance note and a template objection letter through your letterbox. To avoid confusion these are the same documents as the attached We are doing a letterdrop to make sure that everyone receives a copy because not everyone has an email address. 
We have almost completed our own, very detailed, objection letter, that will be available on our website in the next day or so.  We will also email out a copy once available. 
Once again, we have arranged central collection boxes at the Green Hammerton Post Office, Landlaff Cottage in Kirk Hammerton c/o Les&Janice, and the Whixley Village Shop You can leave your signed letter(s) there to be hand delivered by a member of the action group to the Planning Officer.
Thank you for your support
