At last an Inspector who has actually listened to us, has been to Silsden and agrees we don't need lots of new houses (or a bypass).

An interesting read:

I agree. But don't be fooled by some of the noises from Bradford. It was the people of Silsden that made the effort not Bradford councillors!

My reading of the report suggests that one of the criteria the inspector must now consider is public transport. It is obvious that he did his job correctly and came by train. Finding no connecting bus he diced with death across the trunk road and walked to Silsden. Even a bypass and no public transport would have made little difference.

It is probably one of the first occasions when a village has not been developed because it is cluttered up with cars!

I did suggest in my submission, as far as I remember it was a long time ago, that if they wanted to develope Silsden there should be a loop from the railway, through the vilage, over Cringles, down through Addingham connecting back with the system at Ilkley. Alternatively a local bus service that actually connects with the trains and a seperate cycle track and bridge.

There's a big hill where your loop goes that could cause a few problems. Nice idea though. I think the answer is an integrated and cheaper bus service that doesn't smell of wee and leave you in the rain for ages is the answer.

I hate the busses.
There isn't enough legroom, so I end up sitting sideways so that I can fit into the seat.
The new zone busses are worse, they’re cluttered with trolleys with and the elderly end up being pushed to the back of the bus or being banged.

Drive or be crushed and remember while being cramped and bumped you are helping to cut down greenhouse gasses.
What a choice!!!!!!!!

I noticed another site about proposals for the development of the Aire Valley. On the map was a footpath, cycleway and bridge from the railway station to Silsden. Also, the goods yard was marked as a car park and bus station. No bypass though.

That looks like a good plan and might reduce the number of people who drive from silsden to the train station
