FULFORD Parish Council has asked me to make clear that there has been no new decision to reject the parish council’s legal challenge against City of York Council over the Germany Beck development. Our appeal is before the courts and a decision is awaited.

The article (Housing work at Germany Beck to start, The Press, February 24) related to an entirely separate legal action against English Heritage, brought by archaeologist Chas Jones.

The parish council and local groups are actively raising funds to continue the legal action and I hope that residents did not get the wrong impression from the article.
