Chiltern Society raising funds for HS2 legal challenge

From the Chiltern Society:

The Chiltern Society launched a fundraising appeal last week to raise money to fund the legal expenses of mounting a judicial review. Together with other organisations in the Chilterns, we believe that an application for Judicial Review on environmental grounds should be made. This process comprises an initial application to the High Court for permission. If this is granted there will then be a substantive hearing. There will obviously be significant costs involved in both the application for permission and subsequent proceedings.

We are therefore appealing to all members for your support in funding this process. We need to raise a substantial amount, at least £20,000. Since this appeal was launched last week we have raised about £4,000. All donations will be held in a designated account. Payments from the account will be applied in payment of the costs of funding the proposed proceedings.

Donations can be made by:
• telephone: 01494 771250
• post: The Chiltern Society, Freepost (HH601) Chesham HP5 1ZA
• the Chiltern Society website

Thank you for your support for the campaign.
