Well done to all the team out there in Ypres, a superb website, very informative and educational.
Keep up the good work, and fight the good fight, lets hope reason and common sense win in the end. Please remember you are not fighting alone, we are all with you in the
battle to protect this historic site's view of the salient

Hello,
Hugh is the man that put it on line, at the moment individuals could send an email to the minister of toerisme, telling they don't like the way things are going especially since the belgians want to be prepared for 214-2018, and there is a budget for it.but they seem to have lost the main point, "to keep the memory alive".
I can send his emailaddress in a pm to you,
not sure if it's legal to give it in public.
but if you check his website and then click on contact you get his email adres

The website clearly demonstrates the justness of the objection to this building project.

Good luck with the appeal.

Hello Sabine

Good luck with the appeal.

Are the other objectors you mention (Flemish Planning & Heritage agency, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the Friends and Families of the First Australian Imperial Force) still in the fight?

(edit) I've sent you a PM
