Edenthorpe against 650 houses!

Thank you to everyone who helped and supported the campaign.

Edenthorpe Parish Council would like to thank the residents of Edenthorpe who helped protest against the potential 650 houses proposed on land to the East of Mere Lane, Edenthorpe. The planning committee meeting held on 15th November 2016 unanimously refused planning permission.  A fantastic result! 🙂

Please do not be complacent.

The outline planning permission has been refused, however, the land management company can still appeal.IMGP4900

We need Edenthorpe to keep up the good work done so far. This can be presented as email/text/letter and  photographs.

The congestion on the roads, Hatfield Lane, West Moor Link Rd, queuing from junction 4 (M18), Thorne Rd,  highlighting the  single carriage way under railway bridge, Thorne Rd, all evidence  past and present. We need to remember our wildlife –  sky larks,  bats, tawny owls, toads  and many other species in the woods and surrounding areas. Their natural habitats need protection and preservation. This is our last area of open landscape, homes to many species.

It has been proven that for our health and well -being that residents  need walking access to open countryside  to enhance their mental and physical health.

We need evidence that can be used to highlight the decision that the area of land – East of Mere Lane, Edenthorpe, should never have been considered as land for more houses.

Hungerhill business Park is ready for business and ripe for development.


Do not hesitate to contact me.
