Started with a meeting with local residents and neighbours in the morning to update them on the plans. They were all mostly supportive. Some understandable concerns about fears of an increase in traffic and noise. We assured them organizers of events will keep this to a minimum, and guidance will be given to visitors on transport etc. On the whole though there was huge support, and they are keen to work with us to ensure Fairfield House fulfils its potential in fulfilling the Emperor’s wishes, and not sold off privately. Positive meeting!
