2,000 sign petition

MORE than 2,000 people have signed a petition in support of a garden centre

MORE than 2,000 people have signed a petition in support of a garden centre involved in a planning dispute.

Hare Hatch Sheeplands, near Wargrave, is accused by Wokingham Borough Council of using green belt land without permission.

More than 11,000 signed a petition in March, which the council refused to consider, saying it cannot accept petitions on planning issues.

The latest petition was launched last week and attracted 1,500 signatures in the first 48 hours. 

Owner Rob Scott said: “It comes as no surprise to me that we captured so many signatures in such a short space of time and the total grows almost by the hour.



“It shows the huge strength of feeling among our customers and the many community organisations that use us as a base.”

To sign the petition, visit www.petitions24.com/make_your_voice_heard_about_hare_hatch_sheeplands#for or visit the garden centre.
