The Latest on the Ark Animal Rescue Shelter Legal Battle

The focus for the Ark will now be raising sufficient funds to cover the costs of a noise specialist needed in order to support the appeal against the notice.

Joe Pepper, a Commercial Solicitor at Bridge McFarland, attended Boston Magistrates Court on Monday the 25th February 2019 in order to represent The Ark Animal Rescue Shelter in the first hearing since a noise abatement notice was served on them in 2018.

Following the Hearing, Mr Pepper confirmed that the court has seen fit to set out a reasonable time scale in which he can gather our evidence and continue to progress the case for The Ark.

“The Ark does wonderful work and it is my hope that we can reach a settlement with the local authority–we don’t want to see the Ark or the local authority facing unnecessary legal fees”.

The focus for the Ark will now be raising sufficient funds to cover the costs of a noise specialist needed in order to support the appeal against the notice. The Ark has launched a crowdfunding page on 21st Feb 2018 which has already raised over £3,000 towards the legal costs however we would ask that everyone who wants to help us either make a donation to that page, or share it with friends and family to help spread the word.”

Susan Rice, manager of The Ark Animal Rescue Centre, has urged local people to help keep the ‘Ark Afloat’; “We only have until 15 March to raise the funds required for the expert’s report ready for the next hearing in May”
