June 2024 Newsletter

posted in: BPCCRA Newsletters 0

Flaming June is here, but the work of the Association continues despite the weather!

We have now had the formal “Opinion” from the specialist Barrister we briefed regarding the Beach Road Carpark situation. It is clear and well argued; in summary it says that we have no grounds for opposing BCP’s plans for the Carpark unless it makes a procedural mistake. Individuals with covenanted properties may be due some compensation but they will need to take up the cases individually. If the Association can assist an individual member, we will try to help. We will post the “Opinion” on our website.

Where next? We will have to work hard to ensure that the Council keeps to its promises regarding the remaining part of the carpark, and that any planning proposals do the least possible damage; the saga is definitely not yet over!

A Plea!

Unfortunately, our volunteer to take on the role of Membership Secretary has had to withdraw so we our still urgently seeking someone who will take on this vital task.

Without a Membership Secretary the Association cannot function; this is an urgent situation. We will ensure that whoever takes on this key role is fully supported. Please contact me to discuss (without obligation!) what is involved. Contact details below.

We were glad to meet our new Ward Councillor Gavin Wright at our June meeting and look forward to working with him and Councillor John Challinor in the interests of all our members.
