Guildford Borough Council have begun issuing a statement from Countryside Manager Hendryk Jurk, which attempts to clear up ‘misunderstandings circulating’.
In it, he makes no mention whatsoever of the key problem with their plans: that families, children, community groups and tourists will no longer be permitted to use the site as a campsite, which is the whole point of the #savechantry campaign – and the efforts of all those who we’ve spoken with since launching earlier this week.
We can only assume that the council executive have either forgotten to include this in their clearing up of ‘misunderstandings’, or they’ve done it deliberately, in which case, they are clearly dissembling.
Our advice is: don’t be fooled. Keep up the campaign, and keep writing to your councillors. We’ve been approached by other groups who want to collaborate, and we’re always open to people who either have ideas, or want to get involved. Contact us via the webform, and find out more about what you can do.
