Thanks and well done to those who travelled on the bus to Ledbury in Herefordshire on Saturday for the inspiring demo at Sequani animal labs, let's make sure we keep up the momentum at Wickham...
Wickham animal testing laboratory in Hampshire is planning to build new laboratories, and local activists are working with Wickham residents and councillors to campaign to stop them, see the article below . Please support the national protest on Saturday 20th September.
Controversial labs may be demolished for new homes
A Hampshire animal testing laboratory faces demolition if owners get the go-ahead to replace it with 14 new homes. However any celebrations by animal activists, who host annual demonstrations outside the labs, may be premature, as Mr Cartmell seeks to move the labs to Torbay Farm in Lower Upham.
Mr Cartmell has already been granted permission to demolish the labs but he is still seeking permission from Winchester City Council for his plans to build the homes.
The new plans have not been welcomed by Wickham Parish Council who claim Mr Cartmell has failed to consult local residents.
A date had not yet been set for the new planning application to be considered by the council's committee.
