Would you like to help raise funds to support the campaign to Save Chesterton?  The independent government inspector has been appointed and is currently conducting a review of all the issues for the proposed development of a 3,000 house new town at Gaydon and Lighthorne.

We are now entering a critical period where our voices need to be heard.  To do this we need to raise funds as we enter a costly period of professional legal representation.

  • display and sell your Chesterton art in a public exhibition for one month
