SALFV (Stand Against Lodge Farm Village) is asking members of the public to go along to the Benn Hall from 10am on January 31 in particular when Lodge Farm is to be discussed, and has circulated a leaflet to villages featuring the iconic image of Lord Kitchener.

A spokesman said: “We need to pack the room with 500 people to demonstrate the scale of opposition against Lodge Farm to the planning inspector.

“You will see our barrister, solicitors, experts, local councils and local people present a compelling argument to remove Lodge Farm from the plan. We can win.”
