    Yes I agree about the money side of things and it is this point I have been making for ages about fundraising, you can't just start fund raising without a busness plan, since it needs to be taken seriously, as for the land owners North of Woody...

    Yes I have read it but there are reasons for it suggestion, in part I can understand why it has been said, but the trouble is whatever we do next, it is going to cost a lot of money. As I see it right now and with the imformation I have to hand,...

    So does that change who had the most support? i.e. Votes for minus votes against. It's all well and good getting a lot of votes for but if there are also a lot of votes against do they change things? Bit like goal difference really?

    Just in case you're alluding to me extracting information from the L & B Blackmoor Co. 2023 accounts (sent to me by concerned shareholders) with the accusation of breaching confidentiality in what I have posted, I did this because members of...

    It might be fruitful to question what has motivated such leaks...it seems to occur when there is a mismatch between the very limited official pronouncements & what had occurred in eg board meetings. Whistle-blowing is an essential method of...

    I don’t know what your experience of the 'world of business' is, but mine is that degree of secrecy seen here is quite remarkable. A guy who I was in business with many years ago once said that there were two reasons for excess secrecy - either...

    The Railway should not even be thinking about extending the current length of line, until the land is secured, surely that has to be the number 1 priority, and start with the other end of Woody Bay, to the next viable site, before thinking of...

    Hi @DaveE "I should imagine" is not the same as "is", @DaveE - and that's precisely the point. You may be right or you may be wrong, but until we do a proper options analysis we won't know - and this is a lot of money (I hear £1.5m or so) which...

    I'd be delighted to see some progress. What I don't understand with the CFL proposals include, but are not limited to: (i) How much will the CFL extension cost? Is this the best use of limited resources vs say reinstatement south of OSHI (which...

    Thanks for your insight. In a way it is a pity that the meeting can't be streamed so that we can observe what happens first hand. Maybe streaming the meeting might have a positive effect on the conduct of the meeting. I am a member of another...

    I disagree. There is a lot of the detail there that won’t need sharing, but principles and outlines can almost all be shared - confidentiality is rarely that absolute. More importantly, some of the questions (notably about economics and fill)...

    With all due respect, has it occurred to you and the original poster that the question that was asked at the meeting, and i was there, was from a new member who hasn't got the background information on the original planning and subsequent S73...
