We’re indebted to Allen Day fo pointing out the following …

“There is a petition running on Change.org to stop Hambleton District Council from purchasing the farmland alongside the bypass and expanding the Leeming Bar Industrial Estate.

I know that there are a number of people in the village who are interested in this development and it would be nice if they could voice their opinions using the following web address.
https://www.change.org/p/hambleton-district-council-stop-hambleton-council-buying-farmland-to-circumvent-planning-rules.”

You can also contact your District Councillor, Brian Phillips, on cllr.brian.phillips@hambleton.gov.uk
