577 houses planned for Land East of Mere Lane

Have your Say!

I have today, received this email from Senior Planner at Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners Ltd regarding the housing proposed for Mere Lane. This was strongly opposed by Edenthorpe Parish Council, Doncaster MBC and many residents. However, Central Government gave the permission for the application to proceed.

Please see attached leaflet which many residents will have received through their doors.

MA40968 Mere Lane, Edenthorpe – A5 Leaflet – Mar21

“I am writing to inform you of a public consultation that is currently underway for Reserved Matters applications relating to the outline approval for the development of approximately 600 homes on land at Mere Lane, Edenthorpe. A copy of the consultation leaflet, which has been sent to local residents, is attached to this email. The leaflet provides information about the proposed details of the application and includes a link to a consultation website that has been set up to provide further information about the proposals and gives an opportunity for residents to leave feedback”.

Thank you to local company.

Edenthorpe Sign back in place.

A huge hank you to Kane Fairclough and Michael Hope of 3 Elements construction Ltd. These guys have put Edenthorpe back on the map. The Edenthorpe entrance sign on Doncaster Rd was taken down last year by Michael Hope as it had become warped by the weather. He has had this straightened and the sign was put back by Kane yesterday. In addition, Kane has installed a water tap from Edenthorpe Allotments into the new Eden G Community Gardens for no charge whatsoever. Thank you so much 🙂 great guys, great village. 👏👍💪
