Fighting the Dunsden Gladman Development
Binfield Heath is one of seven parishes working together to fight the application by Gladman to build a big development in Eye and Dunsden Parish. This was refused by SODC councillors but goes to appeal at the begining of May. E&D Parish Council has set up a fighting fund to raise enough money for the legal and expert costs of the appeal - if you would like to donate, go to www.cagedunsden.org
70 this year!
The 70th Binfield Heath Flower Show will take place on bank holiday Saturday August 25th. Watch out for news of celebration events for the village's biggest annual gathering.
Do we want a neighbourhood plan?
The Parish Council is currently considering the pros and cons of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan, a huge task we have so far resisted. Pressure from the District Council, and behind them the Government itself, may make this position harder to maintain and we will need to hear your views. We'll be discussing this at the council's APM on May 21 - look out for details nearer the time.
Signed up for our news emails?
Receiving occasional news mail-outs from the Parish Council on matters that affect you is the fastest and most efficient way to find out what's going on in your parish. However, the government has issued new rules concerning data protection and we will shortly be writing to ask you to confirm to us that you wish to continue receiving our emails.
From this page you can see diary events in the village at a glance, with a link to more information if you need it. Check which bin is going out this week and look up the bus timetable or report potholes in our roads. You can comment on planning applications direct with SODC at the click of a button, without knowing the application number.
If you change your email address just sign up again with the new one - you don't have to delete the old one.
