HWPS welcomes the opportunity to join the Rural Hart Association as this would cost no money upfront and we would not be under any obligation to contribute to the fund being collected to appoint consultants who are competent and experienced enough to get to grips with the complexity of planning rules. On the other hand there could be strong support from HWPS members for making a contribution to such a significant project. We would anticipate getting some good advice and information by rubbing shoulders with some very knowledgeable people with long experience of objecting to planning applications.  For more information go to www.ruralhart.org
