**ARE YOU A FRIEND OF HALSTEAD AIR RAID SHELTERS?**
The wooded area to the east of the High Street, Halstead is still a designated Comprehensive Development Area on which a range of developments is permitted. Braintree District Council states that wildlife habitats and Tree Protection Orders would be respected and have committed themselves to save at least one of the Costain air raid shelters. The survival of even a single shelter will need a team of volunteers to help maintain and fund it. We’d like to set up a Friends of Halstead Air Raid Shelters organisation in order to show Braintree District Council that we have a viable and committed management team.
What we need:
Your name as a Friend of Halstead Air Raid Shelters to show your support in principle to help save the air raid shelters.
People to write to Braintree District Council’s Planning Department to show we want them to be preserved and made accessible to the public.
Friends of Halstead Air Raid Shelters volunteers to work together to manage however many are saved.
