Our planning authority (Stratford on Avon District Council) has expressed support for the project, but we have had to face a very time-consuming public inquiry, as we plan to build in an historical landscape containing a listed buildings.
We have not, as Gillian Widdicombe suggests, neglected our supporters. The Compton Verney Association, founded in 1991, has put on four concerts a year at Compton Verney (until this year, when construction work in progress forced us to look at other venues). Opera stars of the stature of Thomas Allen and Robert Tear have sung to full houses and great applause by our supporters from far and near.
