Because of the chivalrous fighting by Hare Krishna devotees to find a solution to keep Bhaktivedanta Monor open for public worship, finally, in May of 1996, the Minister of the Environment granted permission to build an alternative access road to the Manor, and the British government declared that it shall never again put a ban on public worship on any Hare Krishna temple, ever.
