As you are probably aware the Forum Management Committee submitted our application for designation of the Forum to Rossendale Council on 23rd February. A few days later (and much earlier than we anticipated) the Council publicised this which started the six week consultation period. Our application and relevant information is on the RBC website at:
During the consultation period, comments on our application can be made to the Council. Comments can be submitted online at: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/RBCNHF/ . Please note that if you do not accept for the Council to hold your details on their database then you will not be allowed to complete the survey.
The first Forum newsletter has now been finalised and we expect to distribute this throughout Edenfield over the next two weeks. We are hoping that this will result in many more members joining us.
The next meeting of the Forum will be scheduled for sometime in May with the exact date to be advised in due course. At that time we will report on all of the work being done by the Management Committee. Hopefully by then we will also have a decision from the Council on our application for designation.
