Following the judgement handed down today by the Courts, Wellesbourne Matters has the following statement:

It is very regrettable that the Wellesbourne based businesses have had their application for tenancies turned down by the Court. It is our view however that this does not represent the end of the process that has been running for several years now, but is just another obstacle to be overcome.

We are now in the process of exploring the various options that are open to us, but this will take some time before we have any definitive answers or plans.

In the light of the above the Wellesbourne Matters AGM will be postponed for a period of time until our options become clearer.
