New leaflet out – please object

Last weekend, ECNF held a well attended meeting in the Community Centre where we shared information that we’ve gleaned from the new plan and associated planning application by Taylor Wimpey.

Hot on the heels of that event, we’ve launched a new leaflet which outlines some of our key objections to this plan.

In summary:

  • The proposed site plan lacks a comprehensive masterplan and hasn’t been approved by RBC or all developers.
  • Traffic, pedestrian safety, and cycling concerns persist, especially with the new junctions in Edenfield.
  • There’s no site-wide traffic or road safety assessment.
  • The infrastructure needs, including schools and healthcare, are unaddressed.
    The design codes of the Neighbourhood Plan and landscaping are given minimal consideration.
  • Issues such as ecology, rainwater pollution, flood risk, and SUDS near the A56 are ignored.
  • Local businesses will be adversely impacted by the proposed parking restrictions.
  • Greenbelt release for school, play area, and car park isn’t aligned with the RBC Local Plan and would cause environmental and safety issues.

Residents should all receive a copy of this leaflet, but it is reproduced here as a convenience.

You can object in writing to Rossendale Borough Council, by completing the reply slip on the leaflet that we posted of by filling the form below. Please encourage all adults in your household to submit an objection.
