PRESS RELEASE 26 May 2017
Presentation of a civic medallion
On Friday 26th May the members of Edenbridge Town Council were delighted to award Robert McKillop with a civic medallion in recognition of his long and valuable service to the communications section of Edenbridge Town Council’s Emergency Planning Committee.
Robert and his wife Julia have been involved in Emergency Planning for over thirty years.
In 1987 they attended Kent County Council’s Emergency Planning “Community Volunteer” Training course over a period of 32 weeks. Before the course finished, Edenbridge was to experience major flooding, followed shortly afterwards by the ‘hurricane’. In both emergencies, they supported Edenbridge Town Council by providing communications with Sevenoaks District Council.
They were active members of Edenbridge Town Council’s Emergency Planning Committee for many years and participated in their annual multi-agency exercises.
Unfortunately, Julia was diagnosed with MS in 2003, but Robert continued to work with the Emergency Planning Committee, in particular by encouraging members to take the Amateur Radio Foundation Licence training course and encouraging others to operate radios confidently.
Robert’s most recent achievement was to design a radio system that provides resilient communications throughout the parish and beyond. Without his expert guidance, the arrangements for dealing with emergencies in the town would be very much less effective.
 
NEWS RELEASE 20 June 2017
New notice board – Marsh Green
Marsh Green village community has a smart new notice board to help people keep up with local events and activities, thanks to a joint project between Edenbridge Town Council, St John URC church, and local residents.

The notice board has been installed behind the front garden wall at the church, replacing a smaller board used for church notices. The left side of the new board will feature Council notices and events, and the right side will show church and community information and activities.

Funding for the project included a generous donation from a local resident, and a contribution from the church, as well as the Town Council.

Local councillor James Barnett, who is vice-chairman of the open spaces committee, says: “Having consulted residents on where the notice board should be placed, it is good to have it where people passing by can see it.”

PRESS RELEASE 28 April 2017
Presentation of a civic medallion
On Friday 28th April the Members of Edenbridge Town Council were delighted to award David with a civic medallion in recognition of his consistent and highly informed recording and monitoring of wildlife in Edenbridge, thereby enabling the community and professional organisations to understand and value the natural world ‘on its doorstep’, as well as identifying trends over the years.
David has always had an interest in ‘the natural world’ since childhood and, although born and bred in Buxted, it was nurtured when, aged 6 years, the family moved to Kent and his father was employed as a gardener at Hever Castle. It was further reinforced when, after attending East Anglia University, David trained and qualified as a teacher, specialising in biology, with his teaching career taking him to Nottingham for four years, and then south to Purley where he remained until retiring from the profession in 1995.
With time now available for him to spend at his leisure, he was able to combine his two main interests – the ‘natural world’ and ‘making lists’! The latter, in particular, was to reinforce and enable him to develop the former to a level which evolved, rather than being pursued, in its own right.
David began using the increased amount of time available to him by taking daily walks in the Edenbridge area, and of recording the wildlife which he identified in a designated area, starting with bird life and progressing to embrace other forms of wildlife – mammals, butterflies, damselflies and dragonflies, in particular, so that, from 1996 onwards, he had a ‘tried and tested’ system for monitoring and recording what he was able to identify in that designated area where he took his daily walks.
He has followed this routine for the past 20 years and, at the end of each calendar year, has produced a summation of his observations, with verification from detailed, daily accounts. His annual reports are forwarded to, amongst others, the British Trust for Ornithology, the National Biological Research Centre, the Kent Butterfly Group, Kent Wildlife Trust and, of course, Edenbridge Town Council.

 
Edenbridge & District Twinning Association is welcoming their French visitors for the weekend of Friday 12th to Sunday 14th May. The French group is arriving late on the Friday evening, and the following day there is an outing to Penshurst Place and Church. That evening everyone is joining together for a meal in Edenbridge WI Hall, and on the Sunday a farewell light brunch is being held in Rickards Hall, with entertainment by Marlings Morris.
A number of French ‘twinners’ are expected and any help with hosting would be much appreciated. The Association pays for the activities for the French, courtesy of fund-raising events and donations, so those hosting just need to provide bed, breakfast, picnic and some drinks for their guests, and it doesn’t matter if you can’t speak French.
Information is on the website www.edta.org.uk or please contact 01732 863226 by early April.

New benches, gifts for Doggetts Courtyard
Visitors to Doggetts Barn Courtyard can take a seat on three new benches, thanks to donations for two of them from the Great Stone Bridge Trust and the Edenbridge and Westerham Rotary Club.
The official handover to the community will take place on Friday 16th December at 2.30pm. Both the benefactor groups and Town Councillors will be present.
Photographers are invited to this short event, and there will be tea served afterwards.
The previous extra-long wooden benches were donated to the Museum when the former bowls club closed, and moved for use in Doggetts Courtyard, but they became unrepairable.
The seating is much used by parents taking children to and from activities in Rickards Hall, by local people and visitors attending events, or just seeking a sunny spot for lunch.
“It’s great to have the new benches in the Courtyard for the community to use for many years to come, thanks to Great Stone Bridge and the Rotary Club’s generosity” says Cllr Alan Layland, chairman of the Open Spaces committee.

NEWS RELEASE December 2016
Council funding supports community

All small grant fund of £7,500 has been shared among several local organisations.
Town Councillors are very pleased they are to be able to support the community with these grants. The money has been distributed fairly and appropriately amongst more than 15 applicants.
Councillors are also happy to announce the Council continues as a funding partner supporting the Community Warden post, currently held by Rose Briggs.
The Warden provides a link between many organisations working in and for the community. This includes patrolling to monitor for graffiti, fly-tipping, dog fouling and vandalism, and a wide range of other issues which affect the well-being and safety of local people. The Community Warden and volunteer speed-watchers also hold regular sessions in the area to monitor the traffic.
The Warden coordinates a team of volunteer litter pickers, providing additional litter removal to complement routine street sweeping. The last “blitz” session resulted in 20 bags of rubbish cleared.
The Warden recently led small teams of volunteers for planting more than 3,000 daffodil bulbs along the main road through Edenbridge, to brighten up the verges in spring.
Councillors agree the Community Warden role is a huge asset to the town and will continue to advocate it. Any local organisations who would like to become funding partners supporting the Warden are urged to contact the Town Council Office.

New benches needed for Doggetts Courtyard

Edenbridge Town Council is offering local organisations or families the chance to donate a bench for community use in the courtyard behind Eden Valley Museum.

Two extra-long wooden benches were donated to the Museum and moved when the former bowls club closed, for use in Doggetts Courtyard off the High Street. They became unrepairable, and the Council is hoping they can be replaced with similar long seats, which are popular with users of Rickards Hall which is also off the Courtyard.

Parents taking children to and from activities in the hall, local people and visitors attending
events, or just seeking a sunny spot for lunch, have all made use of the seating.

“It would be good to have two more good solid benches in the courtyard, to replace the old ones for the community to use for many years to come,” says Cllr Alan Layland, chairman of the Open Spaces committee.

The cost of a suitable eight foot wooden bench would be around £700, and anyone interested in donating one for the courtyard is asked to contact the Town Council office.

REPLACEMENT FLASHING SPEED SIGN
There is once again a flashing speed sign at the Marlpit Hill entry to Edenbridge.
Town Councillor Bob Todd said he was delighted the much needed flashing speed sign had finally been reinstated to help reduce speeding in the north part of the town. The Community Warden and volunteer ‘speed watchers’ hold regular sessions in the area to monitor the traffic. A grant towards the cost was received from the Community Safety Partnership, at Sevenoaks District Council. Speeding through Marlpit Hill has been highlighted as an ongoing problem and Edenbridge Town Council members are working with County Councillor Clive Pearman and Kent Highways to investigate options.

 
News Release 15.2.2016
Neighbourhood Plan consultation event – drop in while you’re shopping
Local people are being asked to comment on policies proposed for the Neighbourhood Plan, to shape the development of the town over the next 15 years. There will be an event at Rickards Hall on Saturday 27th February 10am-12.30pm, with displays on the policies and the chance for people to have their say over a cup of coffee.
The Neighbourhood Plan project team is also asking every household to watch out for a small booklet through their letterbox in the next couple of weeks, and urges people to reply with their views using the Freepost envelope.
Months of work by volunteers in five Task Groups has gathered evidence to support the policies – including the Housing Needs Survey carried out last July, to which nearly a quarter of Edenbridge households responded, and before that a Businesses Survey of local companies. The proposed policies cover aspects of housing, economy, environment, infrastructure, building design, and community health/learning/well-being – the main themes as follows:
Housing: developments to conform with the updated Design Statement and the new Character Areas Assessment, and to meet the needs of current and future households in the Edenbridge Neighbourhood Plan Area, in terms of mix of affordability and unit sizes.
Environment: protecting smaller local open spaces now identified within the community, sustainable urban drainage schemes, and minimising landscape impact from any development which may be permitted in the Green Belt.
Economy: enhancing the retail/High Street area, the future of larger business sites, and tourism opportunities.
Infrastructure: the capability of infrastructure to support future development, including utilities and transport, and the development of non-vehicle routes (pedestrian/cycle) through the town.
Health/learning/well-being: provision of health facilities; community facilities to be maintained/enhanced as developments come on stream, supported by a register of community assets; and support for a new learning facility.
Creating a Neighbourhood Plan is a way communities can shape how they develop in future through local-level planning policies. This two-year project has been under way in Edenbridge since spring 2014, headed by a Steering Group of representatives from a dozen organisations.
Local people were first asked what they liked about the town, and what they would like to change, and invited to help with the project. From replies to those questions, a vision for the town’s future emerged, and objectives agreed with community support through two public events in autumn 2014.

The Presentation of a Civic Medallion to
Terri Scanes - Monday 7th December 2015
The Presentation of a Civic Medallion to
Terri Scanes moved to Edenbridge over 18 years ago and is married to Martin.
Since her arrival she has played an active role supporting a number of local societies and clubs, including the Historical Society, Town Twinning Association, Sustainable Edenbridge, Women’s Institute, and Edenbridge Holiday Activities Scheme – both as their Community Liaison and volunteer helper – and has driven for the Edenbridge Voluntary Transport Service for 4 years.
She was one of the prime movers for Fairtrade, helping to make Edenbridge the first Fairtrade Town in Kent. The group recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and continues to flourish.
Terri was elected to the Town Council in 2003 and, in addition to serving on a number of Council committees, was elected Chairman in 2009 by her fellow councillors. Unfortunately she had to resign from the Council in 2014, due to temporary ill health.
She is a long term member of the Edenbridge branch of the Conservative Association and is currently acting as the branch secretary.
Terri has been a leading light in the Guide/Brownie movement for over 39 years, serving in a number of towns across the country, and in a range of roles including District Secretary, Division Commissioner and Leadership mentor. She has run the local Brownie pack for the last 18 years.
Amongst all the things she does, she also finds time to look after an interesting member of her household – a Barn Owl which she has had for more than 20 years and raised from a chick!
These are a few examples of the contribution Terri has made to local organisations – long may she continue these positive roles in the life of the town.
The Members of Edenbridge Town Council are delighted to award Terri Scanes with a civic medallion in recognition of her long and valuable service to the community.

Housing needs survey results
Nearly a quarter of Edenbridge households responded to the Housing Needs Survey carried out during July for the Neighbourhood Plan project.
Local residents were asked to help the project team by giving information about their housing needs over the next few years. Would they need to move home, to down-size or upsize, did they want to change from renting to home ownership, leave parents’ home to set up their own, or move in to share with a relative – depending on the stage of their lives.
From 4,000 surveys delivered, 23% were returned, and key points which emerged were that 84% of respondents were owner occupiers either with or without a mortgage; the remaining 16% were a mix of renters (private and social housing), shared owners and tied tenants – 66% of respondents had lived in the parish for 10 years or more.
There was not great support for more housing being built in Edenbridge:
53% of respondents who answered the question said they would not be supportive of future housing development in Edenbridge parish, but 64% of respondents who answered the question said they would support a development of affordable local needs housing, if there was a proven need for people with a genuine local connection to Edenbridge parish.
The survey replies showed 25 households need affordable housing – a total of 9 single people, 3 couples and 13 families, 28 households need open market housing – a total of 8 single people, 8 couples, 11 families and 1 household consisting of two siblings sharing. A further 100 additional respondents indicated that they or someone living with them were considering moving to alternative accommodation within Edenbridge parish, either open market or affordable housing within 5 years, or in 5 or more years.
The Housing Task Group within the Neighbourhood Plan team is now looking at the details of the survey results to see how they can be reflected in policies within the Plan.
Creating a Neighbourhood Plan is a way communities can shape how they develop in future through local-level planning policies. This two-year project has been under way in Edenbridge since spring last year, headed by a Steering Group of representatives from a dozen organisations.
Local people were first asked what they liked about the town, and what they would like to change, and invited to help with the project. From the replies to those questions, a vision for the town’s future emerged, and objectives agreed with community support through two public events in autumn last year.
Volunteers have been working in five different Task Groups on aspects of the Neighbourhood Plan – housing, economy, environment, infrastructure, and health/learning/well-being. These are meeting monthly to produce the sections of the Plan – next is 19th November, 7.30-9.00pm at Rickards Hall, just off Edenbridge High Street, behind the Museum. Local people are invited to join in and help shape the future of the town, and can keep up to date with the news by following the project on Facebook.

They also would like thriving attractive High Street in character with the existing mix of historic architectural periods, continuing to attract visitors as a tourism hub with improved facilities, and to have retained and regenerated industrial areas, adapted for changing economic trends and providing local employment.
Giant maps of Edenbridge and surrounding area gave people the chance to pin flags with comments on aspects they liked, or on matters about which they had concerns. There was also the chance to speak with the team, discuss ideas, and to vote on issues that affect the area. Children from the primary school and Edenbridge cubs had also thought about the town’s future and their work was also on display.
Not all the possible objectives being tested were supported by those who attended, but the task now is to consider how to turn those which were agreed into local planning policies to be included in the Neighbourhood Plan, and to gather evidence to support those policies.
When completed, the Plan will be used to shape future development in the area. It will cover topics such as housing, health, economy and the environment, dealing with how land is used. A Neighbourhood Plan does not cover the operation of services and facilities provided by organisations.
Key concerns about services, which will need to be addressed in other ways than through land use planning, have been passed to the Town Council, to consider to pursuing those with appropriate organisations for action – ranging from policing and anti-social behaviour, to road maintenance, medical facilities, parking enforcement, train services, litter/dog fouling, flood defences, High St traffic calming and transport for non-drivers. The need for secondary education divided opinion: one side views this as vital, while the other agrees it is needed but is not viable to pursue. There is solid support for post-school and adult education in town.
In Edenbridge the team working on the plan includes the Town Council, Eden Valley Chamber of Commerce, local housing associations, Sustainable Edenbridge, Kent Wildlife Trust, Rail Travellers Association, residents and landowners. The steering group was formed in Edenbridge to make use of the new powers available to communities since the introduction of the Localism Act to decide what happens where they live.

News Release 9.10.2014

Take 15minutes to help shape the future of Edenbridge
Communities have had the power to decide what happens where they live since the introduction of the Localism Act. A taskforce has been formed in Edenbridge to make use of these new powers and local people are invited to be part of the planning process at two Neighbourhood Planning events.
It could take as little as 15minutes for people to add their thoughts and ideas that will shape Edenbridge’s future until 2030. Simply pop along to one of the open Neighbourhood Planning events – on 22nd October at 6pm-9pm at the Eden Centre, or 25th October at 9.30am-12.30pm at Rickards Hall.
At the events there will be activities with giant maps of Edenbridge and surrounding area illustrating future opportunities for development. There is also the chance to speak with the team, discuss ideas, and to vote on issues that affect the area. Children from the primary school have also thought about the town’s future and a display of their work will also be on show.
The new Neighbourhood Plan will be developed using the feedback from these events and an online campaign running alongside. The plan will be used to shape future development and infrastructure in the area. It will cover hot topics such as Housing, Health, Economy and the Environment.
Energy-saving and healthy living are two other issues for the future well-being of the community, and the District Council will be there to highlight these – healthy lifestyles with the “smoothie bike” in action, and also cutting energy costs with the Switch and Save scheme offering a chance to compare prices on household energy bills.
A Neighbourhood Plan sets out policies on development and use of land in a parish or local area, with the added bonus of being designed by local people for local people. In Edenbridge the team working on the plan includes the Town Council, Eden Valley Chamber of Commerce, local housing associations, Sustainable Edenbridge, Kent Wildlife Trust, Rail Travellers Association, residents and landowners.

ENGLISH TOURING OPERA
Monday 2 June 2014
Pupils at three Lambeth primary schools are joining forces with local adults and a national opera company to create and perform a new opera this June at Lambeth Town Hall.
Edenbridge tells the story of the evacuation of children from Lambeth to the countryside in the second world war.
The project sees 60 pupils at Reay School in Oval working for the second time with national opera company English Touring Opera (ETO), following the success last year of Laika in Lambeth, an opera about the first dog in space.
Two classes from Reay School are working alongside pupils from Oasis Academy and Vauxhall primary school, together with adults recruited from the local community.
Edenbridge has been devised during a series of workshops involving the creation of the design, the words, the story and the music of the piece.
In the opera, which lasts around an hour, a group of children are evacuated from Lambeth to the countryside during the second world war. The story sees the children journey from Waterloo station to the town of Edenbridge in Kent, home to a haunted castle, a mysterious aristocrat and even a talking goose.
ETO’s creative team includes professional opera singer Susan Moore and cellist Rebecca Hewes, as well as orchestral musicians from the Royal Academy of Music.
Edenbridge also features the same conductor and director as Laika in Lambeth last year – Russell Hepplewhite is writing the music and Tim Yealland is directing the show.
The show features original designs by Catherine Ryan, and is produced by Sarah Botchway, Acting Headteacher of Reay Primary School.
Sarah Botchway said: “It has been another fabulous year producing Edenbridge in collaboration with the English Touring Opera. After the success of last year’s performance, the children have taken to it like ducks to water! It has been a great experience for our pupils to work alongside pupils from other schools as well as adults from the community.”
ETO’s Tim Yealland, directing the project, said: “Our project with Reay School a year ago, Laika in Lambeth, was one of the highlights of 2013 for ETO. It is wonderful to be returning, and to be working with excellent pupils from other schools as well as older people from the borough is an added treat. The story we have found - the evacuation of children from Lambeth in the second world war - seems to have touched everyone involved.”
The two performances of Edenbridge take place on Friday 13 June at Lambeth Town Hall’s Assembly Hall, at 2pm for groups of schoolchildren and teachers, and at 7pm for parents and the general public.
Tickets cost £6 (£4 for children under 12). To book tickets call 020 7735 2978 or email admin@reay.lambeth.sch.uk

Provision of sandbags during periods of flooding
Edenbridge Town Council would like to apologise to the residents who were disappointed with the response they received to requests for sandbags during the winter flooding incidents.

Department of Transport plays down possibility of extending the Uckfield line
A recent Network Rail paper, accompanied by a letter from the Department of Transport, was received with extreme disappointment, in its apparent dismissal of moves towards the much-needed restoration of the Uckfield line. It will not prevent continuing pressure from all users and authorities to see this line being restored and eventually extended to Brighton.

NEWS RELEASE 19 March 2014
Neighbourhood Plan project launched
Edenbridge community has the chance to shape the way the area will develop and look over the next 16 years through creating a Neighbourhood Plan.
The project was launched at the Annual Town Meeting on Monday and aims to produce really local planning policies to guide the development of the parish up to 2030. First step is to seek the views of local people on Edenbridge now, and what they want for the future. Thousands of leaflets (see attached) are being distributed with those questions – what kind of homes, jobs and businesses, leisure, transport and environment would people like?
The aim is to have replies from all ages, from children to pensioners, and from all parts of the community, from shoppers and commuters, to retailers, residents, and employers. There will quickly follow other ways for people to have their say, on-line and in person, at community events, in the High Street, at stations, at meetings of local organisations, as the strategy unfolds for engaging with local people.
The replies will highlight issues which may be covered by creating local planning policies.
These need to fit in with the layers of planning policy from national level downward, but this is a chance for local communities to influence their future, with policies which must be sustainable and deliverable, and supported by evidence of their need.
Edenbridge has been awarded £4,000 of the Government funding allocated through Locality to communities nationwide for preparing Neighbourhood Plans, and also has direct support from officers appointed from Planning Aid England.
A Steering Group of representatives from interested local organisations has formed to progress the project, including the Chamber of Commerce, housing associations, Kent Wildlife Trust, Sustainable Edenbridge and the Town Council. Sub-groups will be formed to work on specific topics, and anyone interested in helping with the project is invited to get in touch.

The finished Plan will have to pass independent examination, and be supported by voting in a local referendum, which is aimed for next year. “As the community is creating the Plan, hopefully people will then be voting for something they already know they want,” says Kathy Staff, co-ordinator of the Neighbourhood Plan project.

Edenbridge Council tax element to increase by 18 pence a week.

For the past three years Edenbridge Town Council has been able to avoid increasing its element of the Council Tax and pay for all inflationary cost increases by improved efficiency. The Council regrets, that in order to deal with actions beyond its control and maintain the valued services it provides to residents, it needs to increase the Band D rate of Council Tax by 18p per week to £2.49 (7.9%). A year ago central government transferred responsibility for paying Council Tax Benefit to low income households from Department of Work and Pensions to local councils. Edenbridge Town Council was required to fund more than £48,000. Central Government provided a grant, passed to us through Sevenoaks District Council, of £42,208 and the Town Council reduced its costs to fund the remainder. This year Central Government has told us on numerous occasions that a similar grant has been allocated to the District Council which they expected to be passed to town and parish councils. However, Sevenoaks District Council has stated that they have been unable to identify any funding for towns and parishes in the grants they have been allocated and none will be passed down. The Council Tax paid to Edenbridge Town Council is used to maintain Stangrove and Blossoms Parks, the Cemetery, Lingfield Road Recreation Ground, two allotment sites and four children’s playgrounds. It works with local sports clubs at Lingfield Road, Blossoms Park and Mowshurst. Church House and Rickards Hall are maintained as community buildings and Doggetts Barn houses the Visitor Information Point and Town Council Offices. The Council generates income from its assets, which helps to offset the amount needed from residents to provide services in Edenbridge and Marsh Green. In addition, Councillors respond to planning applications and represent residents’ concerns at local and national level, most recently relating to the new supermarket applications and airport expansion. They support the Tourism Forum, run the local emergency response and work with a raft of local organisations.


Chairman Cllr Robert Orridge says

“Despite all our best endeavors and continued cost reduction measures over the last three years we are now faced with an entirely unexpected reduction in funding from the District Council. Until now, as a Council we have, unlike some of our neighbouring councils, been able to protect residents from the impact of rising costs and loss of services and have had three years of 0% increase. This year we find ourselves with no other option but to raise the precept. It is realised that any increase will put pressure on families’ and individuals’ budgets to find this increase and sympathise with them.”

PRESS RELEASE 13 December 2013

New Community Warden for Edenbridge


Edenbridge has a new Community Warden in the shape of Rose Briggs who took up her
post this month. She has been appointed by partner organisations of the Edenbridge Community Warden Steering Group which fund the new post. These include the Town Council, which manages the role on behalf of the Group, also two local charities, and housing associations. Together the Group contributes a jig-saw of funding to ensure there is a Warden role in the parish.


Rose brings to the post past experience in the police and education, and enjoys the outdoor environment in her personal life. These skills and interests will be useful in the role of Warden.

Of her new post, she says: “ I have received a warm and friendly welcome in Edenbridge. I am looking forward to working with the community, and with local support would like to explore the idea of setting up a Speedwatch group.” Rose will be working three days a week on flexible hours, including some evening and weekend work at times.

The previous warden, Richard Gordon, has moved away from the south-east with his family, but will help introduce Rose to some of the activities within the post, which provides a link with many organisations working in and for the community. These will include patrolling the parish to monitor for graffiti, fly-tipping, and vandalism, and a wide range of other issues which affect the well-being and safety of the community. The new warden will spend induction time also with local housing association officers, visiting areas of the town where their properties are.


Steering Group chairman Graham Coldman says: “We are delighted to welcome Rose as the new Community Warden, as she builds upon the foundations laid over previous years by Richard, and before him Alex. Rose will contribute to making Edenbridge a pleasant, safer, and cleaner place in which to live. ”
