Edenfield Neighbourhood Forum

Paragraphs 61F & 61G of the Town and Country Planning Act and The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 Regulation 7(1) and 10(1)

In February 2018 Rossendale Borough Council received an application to designate a Neighbourhood Forum and associated Area of operation. A 6 week consultation was held between 23rd February 2018 and 19th April 2018 and 41 valid responses were received. There was one objection to the Forum and two to the proposed boundaries. The rest of the responses were in support.

In accordance with the above legislation, the Council designates Edenfield Community Neighbourhood Forum as the Forum for the Edenfield Neighbourhood Forum Area shown on the Map below for a period of 5 years until 22nd April 2023 in accordance with the documentation below:

Designation as a Neighbourhood Forum means that Edenfield Community Neighbourhood Forum is classified as a “Qualifying Body” to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for its area subject to all the relevant statutory consultation requirements. This has to be in general alignment with the Council’s Local Plan and if approved would form part of the statutory Development Plan for Edenfield.
