Fantastic news - the distribution centre will not go ahead

The applicant, Equation, has withdrawn their appeal, with only just over a month to go. This is the result we wanted!

So, why is this funding page still open?

All evidence had to go to the appeal in advance, so Rowstock Residents' Association has already used our experts time to build our case. We still expect that our costs are likely to be around £20,000 and so we still need your help and support.

Should we be awarded any costs we will refund on a proportional basis but we can only do this if you put your name against the donation. We have 4 weeks to make a costs application and we will update you here.

(All donations will be properly accounted for, and those accounts will be made available for inspection by all RRA members.)

    Many thanks to all of you who have donated towards our costs since the appeal was withdrawn. We really appreciate your help with the costs that we are still facing. We are also continuing to engage with the people responsible for our roads, in particular about overnight closures on the A34 northbound between Milton interchange and Abingdon North, from 30th January. Our concern is that many drivers will use shorter diversions through local villages.

    A last minute reprieve! The Esso site distribution centre will not go ahead. The developer has dropped their appeal only a month before the inquiry was due to start. But our fundraiser is still open... This is fantastic news and we are definitely celebrating. However, due to the very late notice, a huge amount of work has gone into building the case and putting together the evidence to be submitted to the appeal. We have already paid experts for their time. Please continue to share this page with your friends!

    Today we increased our funding target to £25,000. This is to allow us to pay for a transport specialist to support our case too. We think this will give us the best possible chance of winning the case. We are already at 10% of our target. With your help we can do this. Please share this page with people who live or work in the Rowstock area.
