Urge Solihull Council not to close Fat Fluffs Rabbit Rescue

Fat Fluffs is a rabbit rescue and sanctuary based in Solihull in the West Midlands. It was started by Chloe Hennegan, who has run it for many years together with her husband, Andy. They take in all sorts of rabbits and as far as possible they find them loving forever homes. For those with more challenging personalities or continuing health problems they provide sanctuary for them there and they stay as part of the family.

The planners are now trying to shut Chloe's rabbit rescue down as they deem it more than a hobby. There are no given guidelines for what constitutes 'more than a hobby.'
This allows them to demand a planning application for "mixed use" at Chloe and Andy's home which then requires them to ask for retrospective permission for the sheds that they've built. The council are currently recommending a refusal.

The application goes before the planning committee on 11 March and if refused enforcement action will soon follow - forcing Chloe's Fat Fluffs Rabbit Rescue to close. Please support this amazing rabbit rescue facility by signing this petition.

We, the undersigned, urge Solihull Council to allow planning permission for Fat Fluffs Rabbit Rescue to continue to operate. If planning permission is not given, the lives of the rabbits will be put at risk as there is nowhere for them to go.
