Re Neighbourhood Plan

You may be wondering what the Steeton-with-Eastburn & Silsden neighbourhood plan is, and why Bradford Council's Local Plan Group are currently consulting on the subject? .......

Steeton and Silsden have recently completed town surveys which allows this area to make a neighbourhood plan. The advantage of having a neighbourhood plan is we can say what the people of the area would like for the future - housing and amenities etc and not have a plan imposed on us by Bradford. This is what the Town Survey in 2012 was all about.

Statement explaining why this area is considered appropriate to be designated as a neighbourhood area

Having a neighbourhood plan will be a good for the future of this area.



Notification of Public Consultations Ė Neighbourhood Area Applications

I am writing to notify you that Bradford Council's Local Plan Group are currently consulting on three separate Neighbourhood Area Applications from the following Parish & Town Councils:

Steeton-with-Eastburn & Silsden

These applications are formal requests from each Parish & Town Council to Bradford Council to become recognised as a Neighbourhood Area under Part 2, Section 5 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.

These Neighbourhood Area Applications establish the intentions of each Parish and Town Council to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan for their area.

Aim of the consultationS

Each consultation seeks your views and comments on the principle of the Council approving a Neighbourhood Area at Menston, Steeton-with-Eastburn & Silsden and Wilsden, in particular:

∑ Do you agree or disagree with the proposal for a Neighbourhood Area?

∑ Do you think the area identified is suitable for the production of a Neighbourhood Development Plan?

∑ Is the proposed boundary appropriate? Or should be changed in any way?

Following this consultation each application will be presented to the relevant Area Committee for comment, prior to a final decision of the Councilís Executive Committee. If the applications are approved, three new Neighbourhood Areas will be formed to allow the respective Parish Councils to begin work on the preparation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan for their area.

Consultation Period

The consultation will last for 8 weeks, starting on Monday 14th July until 4pm on Monday 8th September 2014.

Where can I view the consultation documents?

The consultation documents are available to download online from:
