The Heart of Eden (HoE) area comprises twelve Parishes and centres around the historic market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland. Parishes include: Appleby, Asby, Bandleyside, Bolton, Crackenthorpe, Dufton, Kirkby Thore, Long Marton, Newbiggin, Milburn, Murton and Temple Sowerby.
The Heart of Eden Community Planning Group was established two years ago, so that people in the Heart of Eden area could have a more hands on approach to local government. This process has been a long, steady and interesting experience for all those people involved, who have given a great deal of their free time.
In developing their Community Plan, the Heart of Eden Group received significant support from EDC, Cumbria County Council and Action with Communities in Cumbria (ACT). The Group were also supported to bid for money from the RDPE and combined with Parish Precepts and a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the County Council, have been able to employ their own part-time co-ordinator for the next three years.
