Resolved Question:

We are a pressure group fighting against the development of our local airport. We have operated for a number of years but we are now being challenged about the legal status of our group. We are not set up as a company or charity but are informally supported by a number of residents associations and other individual residents to whom we provide information and in whose name we write to the council, the press and the airport when required. Do we need to be concerned about this challenge about our status? Do we need to be incorporated as a company or other legal entity? Thank you

Hello
Hello,
You appear to be an unincorporated association of members and there is no legal requirement for you to register your association or incorporate it or for you to register it as a company.
Since you do not have a charitable purpose, you do not need to form a charity as your objects are to oppose the proposed airport expansion.
