The following feedback has been received following the rejection of the Stockeld Park appeal
Fantastic result, a brilliant team effort with a heroic performance from Paul C! What a vindication of our collective perseverance!!
Many thanks for this. Really good news
I am totally delighted by this news.
I live at **** and am an immediate neighbour to Stockeld Park. He is not a good neighbour and it has been said that if he got this planning permission he would go for planning on all his land and give up farming.
I am sure you realise that he will not give up!
Yes!!!! Absolutely fantastic result....well done everyone, especially Paul !!!
On behalf of Kirk Deighton Parish Council and all the Parishioners may I thank all at Better Wetherby for all their hard work fighting the Stockeld appeal and achieving a wonderful result.
Many thanks all of you for your tenacious approach to this proposed development.
Thank you for sharing that excellent news.
I attended the appeal at Harrogate on the 1st and 2nd days.
The presentation by Better Wetherby was excellent. Very professional, articulate, measured and well thought out. The impression I had was that your were ‘ all on top of the Job’.
On the other hand, I thought the Stockeld Park presentation was disjointed and didn’t flow. Too much trying to find facts etc. within files, which really should have been to hand.
I know I am biased, but congratulations to all involved. You did a great job and both you and Wetherby, can be justifiably proud of a fantastic appeal and outcome.
Thank you Better Wetherby. It is a sensational result.
Well done, congratulations to all the Better Wetherby team and thank you so much for all of your efforts.
An outstanding result; a very well done to everyone concerned.
So pleased to have this result today. Please pass my thanks on to all those involved in preventing this building, Wetherby must surely be a better place without it.
Well done Better Wetherby Partnership.
That's great keep fighting
Fantastic news. Well done to those involved in fighting the development.
Great news for a change.
Wonderful news for Wetherby as well as just reward to members of the Better Wetherby Partnership. So the battle is won, but I guess the war will continue. We will be with you in the trenches.
Great news well done all involved!
Thank you for notifying us of the result.
Many thanks to everyone who fought this on our behalf.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful news. Congratulations to everyone involved in representing the best interests of Wetherby. I don’t imagine it is easy ‘fighting’ against a determined, well funded and experienced opponent, but you guys did it.
Well done Better Wetherby. I certainly disagree with one comment, namely that pedestrians would not be affected. I live near to Wentworth Gate and as an elderly person I am afraid to attempt crossing the road there. There is no footpath on my side of the road and so I can’t reach the pedestrian crossing at Chatsworth Drive and there are two bends in the road which, especially in the dark, make it impossible to judge how fast traffic is approaching. Adding any more traffic from a development would only exacerbate the problem. It seems to me that people have to be killed before anybody is prepared to make it safe.
Moan over, I will just have to keep using my car as long as I can which isn’t good for the environment.
Once again well done and thanks for all the good work you are doing.
Warm congratulations to the BW team on their major contribution to this important victory.
Now you can focus on the Racecourse Approach campaign – and when you have triumphed there, please focus on ameliorating Wetherby’s traffic problems, either by means of a short northern by-pass to take Harrogate traffic out of our town centre, or such other even more effective alternative scheme as you can devise.
Dear Good People Of Better Wetherby,
This is fantastic news.
Very many thanks for your hard work.

Congratulations and thanks to Better Wetherby Partnership for all their hard work in obtaining this great result - brilliant news!
Thats great news
Well done people
This IS such good news! We are pleased to have voiced opposition but must credit the ceaseless work by Better Wetherby, with the support of others, against a terribly misconceived proposal. Congratulations
This is great news. Well done and thank you
Is this the final word? Will we see potatoes growing again in the field this summer?
Great news. Well done
Great news well done. just need to stop the development in fields near Spofforth bridge now.....
Thank you for all your hard work in trying to make and keep Wetherby a better place to live.
