A brief note on behalf of the FoAS Committee to let you all know where we are.
Having taken some time to reflect on the DNPA decision to accept the Masterplan, our group has several potential courses of action. We’re currently taking advice from a number of bodies, and talking to organisations and individuals whose support has been instrumental so far, about how they see the next stage. We’re also listening to new ideas and offers of help.
We feel sure you’ll appreciate these discussions are live and sensitive, and it wouldn’t be right to elaborate in this public forum. For similar reasons, it isn’t appropriate for us to enter into some of the discussions on social media right now. But rest assured, we all do monitor the threads very closely, and we also read and consider every comment. We will be privately following up on your many welcome ideas and offers of help.
It’s been really heartening to see that, far from dampening spirits, the DNPA decision has actually redoubled our group’s passion for the fight for Ashburton Station. Whatever the next steps, we feel sure this will serve the group well. The Committee is mindful that time is pressing on, but because our next move will be an important one, we know it must be made with careful consideration and planning.
Thank you for your continued support.
