The Forum is self-funding and relies solely on donations. We now find ourselves in a fight with RBC and Taylor Wimpey (soon to be joined by other developers). We have until the 3rd January 2023 to formulate objection against the submitted Masterplan, Design Codes and a planning application for 236 houses in the first phase of construction of the H66.
We URGENTLY need to engage 3rd party professionals to assist us with that fight. We will need the services of planning experts and transport specialists, possibly legal advice. There will be other costs involved with campaigning, communications and social media. Please help us!
We understand that with Christmas just round the corner and the cost-of-living crisis, this is the last thing people need. But without donations the Forum will be less effective in trying to stop these ridiculous plans being approved.
If you can, please donate. No matter how much, every little will help our village. Thankyou.
Go Fund Me
The Forum has a new “Go Fund Me” page to make it easy to offer support. We’re aiming to raise £10,000 from residents. We know this is a big “ask” but the developers have deep pockets and the support of the Council.
You can make bank transfers direct to our account using the following details:
Account Name – Edenfield Community Neighbourhood Forum
AC No. 26141914
Sort code 01-01-42
You can make cheques payable to “Edenfield Community Neighbourhood Forum” and can be posted or hand delivered to the Forum at 123 Market Street, Edenfield, BL0 0JJ. You’ll know this as “The Old Post Office” so please post to the house rather than the post box!
We will also very happily take cash. Either hand deliver to the address above or get in contact and we can arrange collection.
We’d also like to appeal for donations of time, skills, energy and passion. The Forum has a 12-person committee and almost 300 members. We have A LOT to do in a very short space of time (3rd January deadline), so if you feel passionate about where we live and want to join the fight to protect Edenfield, get in contact. Whether it’s helping post our newsletters & flyers through doors, assisting us with our social medias, organising campaigns and protests – we will take any help you can offer.
