Keep Penrith Campaign starts litigation and complains about unbalanced reporting.


NB 24/10/2018 –Since we wrote this blog yesterday lots of you have been in touch with ITV. But we made a mistake for which we want to apologise. ITV never reported the story about Lowther/EDC withdrawing the plans to build on the Beacon. So it can’t have been misreported by ITV Border it wasn’t reported at all. We posted this to our Facebook site and removed contact links for those involved.

Facebook apology from KPS 24/1-/2018 – Ooops! ITV Border tell us they never ran a story about EDC and Lowther withdrawing their idea of building on the Beacon. Our sources recall the story being on the TV in the morning. They can’t recall which channel. Anyway it wasn’t ITV. They hardly ever report anything about our campaign! We tease them that we live in a TV news version of the Bermuda Triangle … some balanced coverage would be nice as not all of you read the Herald!

Anyway we hope our friends at ITV will be paying a wee bit more attention to our story now. It’s only potentially the biggest thing to happen in Penrith since the arrival of the railway in 1846. But of course we apologise to ITV for telling everyone about a non-existent story. Sorry Catherine.

KPS Will Stick To Your Demands


Letter to EDC 16/10/2018

Dear Mr Beaty

We understand that EDC are going to say EDC are now listening to the people of Eden as a result of the campaigns against the Masterplan.

We thought it important to tell you where we stand as a group.

We think we have earned the trust of the people of Eden and Penrith and we won’t let them down.

By that we mean – we will not allow EDC to get through the back door what they couldn’t get through the front.

We will stick to our demands.

These are clear and we will not trade them away. Continue reading “KPS Will Stick To Your Demands”
