Who and what is the Stop! Campaign
The Stop! campaign was founded by two residents of Hasketon, Nick Green and Nick Deacon. Nick Green is an Investment Manager in charge of Charles Stanley’s Ipswich Office and Nick Deacon works for Nuveen Real Estate, a global investment management company running their office property division in London. Neither have any affiliation or association with any other organisation.
We are a non-political group whose mission statement is quite simply; to stop any Northern Bypass as it is solely for the purpose of concreting over huge swathes of the countryside in order to build a vast number of new houses above and beyond the National requirement. It would be an environmental disaster and would ruin thousands of people’s lives and livelihoods.
The purpose of the Stop! campaign is to bring all stakeholders together and to channel our communal energy, skill and knowledge to defeat these proposals. We are entirely volunteer lead and financed. To assure transparency, all financial statements are made available to the Parish Chair and Clerks at the fortnightly meeting and overseen by a six strong finance committee.
