The Rowley Fields Forever Action Group have been quick to react to the letter from the Chief Executive of the Town Trust in the Herald on 24 October 2013 which accused residents of ‘ a fundamental misunderstanding’ of the Trust’s plans for 7 Benson Road and the land behind. The Group believes it fully understands the plans of the Trust which is why there is so much concern. The Action Group’s comments are included on the front page of the Herald this week. For the article please go to here.
One of the Group’s key concerns is that the Trust has failed to comply with Charity Commission guidance concerning consultation with beneficiaries in advance of purchasing and/or disposing of land. The Chief Executive’s letter in the Herald fails to address this.
Further coverage is included in the letters page of the Herald this week with a beneficiary writing in questioning the Trust’s decision to ‘sell the family silver’.
