Meeting with NBBC tomorrow to talk about Nuneaton and North Warwickshire Equestrian Centre

Nikki Sinclaire MEP will tomorrow meet with Alan Franks of Nuneaton and Bedworth borough Council to discuss the ongoing situation at Nuneaton and North Warwickshire equestrian centre.

The We Demand a Referendum Now MEP wants to ascertain further information about the story, before encouraging the Council to speak directly to the charity, who are based in Galley Common.

Monday saw the charity launch the first legal process, with an appeal being lodged against the Councils decision to not renew the lease. The case has been deferred until January next year, and will be heard within 6 months of that date.

Nikki Sinclaire MEP said,

"Firstly I am grateful to Alan Franks for agreeing to meet me tomorrow to discuss the issue.

I am confident that all legal action could be avoided if all parties simply chose to talk to attempt to resolve the issues they've had.

We've had arguments on the radio and snippets of statements in the paper, but we are no closer to the two parties talking to resolve the issue.

We must avoid further legal action at all costs, as this is only to the detriment to the taxpayer and the charity.

I was in attendance at last weeks petition handover and the strength of feeling was overwhelming. This is a well loved facility. We need sensible dialogue now to come to a decision".
