Signed up and forwarded on. Petitions do carry weight with the council so well worthwhile.

That's great. Yes, if everyone who signed passed this to other people then there should be a great amount of signatures. It will be good if the Cookham Society do some leafletting to raise awareness. Not everyone reads this blog and sometimes people also need a gentle push. But for the sake of a minute or two to sign the petition, this could save a lovely part of Cookham. And it is quicker than completing a survey ! Grin

Only 82 signatures so far -come on let's ramp this up and show the RBWM that Cookhamites won't roll over and give in!!! And remember if you have signed up - check you name has appeared on the petition as it could be that you have got an email in your "junk" file asking you to confirm signature  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Aries - you are quite right about the need to publicise the issue. For that reason the Cookham Society will be carrying out a major distribution of information sheets next week to increase awareness and encourage support of the petition.

Has anyone seen any further information from the Cookham Society as yet or know when the sheets will be distributed?

I believe that distribution has been rescheduled to next week to ensure all areas are covered effectively.

I hope they do all of the Cookhams, it's not just people who are in the immediate area of Poundfield that should have a say, there are plenty of others in the village who may not be aware and would like to have their say.

I agree Paris. Also there are lots of people in the Cookhams who don't read this blog. I understand that when the Cookham Society last petitioned about the land by Whyteladyes Lane the response was very poor (even from the people who lived around there). If people in the Cookhams don't want to see large developments eroding their countryside they need to take action as once things are built on it then we can never go back...

I have just been on the http://www.nochickens.co.uk./ website that I found strangely enough through the http://www.cookham.com/forum/index.php?topic=4400.0 thread...this is fantastically planned website and a real credit to the people who have done it!

I have submitted my objections and several others will do it on my recommendations.

Please can I encourage people to visit the http://www.cookham.com/forum/index.php?topic=4396.msg17895#msg17895 thread and make there objections via http://petitions.rbwm.gov.uk/Poundfield/

Always the chance you might get a chicken farm if you don't protect it!

Careful what you wish for! People (presumably instructed by the farmer) have been taking soil samples from the Poundfield this morning and when asked they said they were testing how hard the ground was!!!!!?Huh

Could be seeing what soil types are there and therefore working to establish what kind of foundations are required?
