Parish Council Elections
Please find attached the Notice of Uncontested Election. A copy has also been displayed on the Council’s web page and on the Civic Office window. As we received fewer candidates than there are vacancies, no election will take place on Thursday 6th May 2021.
I received and email today from Doncaster MBC, who would like to thank everyone for the great work done in communities for the Census so far. To further encourage anyone who has not yet returned their paper questionnaire or submitted their Census digitally, the Office for National Statistics has prepared a ‘Myth Buster’ including information about scams, which is attached.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council ONS Liaison Officer Laurance Green (phone number 07452 940363 or email Laurance.firstname.lastname@example.org)

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.
“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”.

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.

Its time to be counted!
Ready, steady, census
Households across Doncaster will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.
The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
Census day is Sunday 21 March 2021 and it will be the first to be run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets from early March.
“A successful census will ensure everyone from local government to charities can put services and funding in the places where they are most needed,” Iain Bell, deputy national statistician at the Office for National Statistics, said.
“This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, schools and new transport routes. That’s why it is so important everyone takes part and we have made it easier for people to do so online on any device, with help and paper questionnaires for those that need them.”
The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. For the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Results will be available within 12 months, and personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations.
There are also full and part time job opportunities available in Doncaster, please see https://www.censusjobs.co.uk/ for more information and to apply.
For more information on how the census works and can benefit our community visit www.census.gov.uk or contact Laurance.firstname.lastname@example.org 07452 940363
