Changes to Bradford development blueprint could mean fewer new houses for Haworth but more for Silsden

Re above, it was only to be expected... Silsden the housing development area, easy touch to build lots of houses.

They will build houses anywhere it would seem to get the numbers BUT where is the strategy for a coordinated housing policy which has local jobs. Total gridlock looms.

Got this by email today - the dates when things are supposed to happen.

Plan-it Bradford is the e-newsletter that keeps you up to date with the latest planning policy news and the progress being made on the Local Plan for the Bradford District.

its all a game to justify their jobs, the strategy will not even be adopted before 2017 and then they have to start the allocation plan which from beginning to end with all the consultations, public inquiries, amendments etc blah blah blah.
I don't think permission should be given for any more development until the plan is adopted, mind you I think any housing that is built before the plan is adopted can be deducted form our allocation, not sure.
I presume the town council are putting a strong objection in against the proposed development at belton road??? It is employment land for a start!

It shows how incompetent Bradford Council are. To lose 700 houses planned for the Bradford city area and build them on the fringes of the council area is beyond belief.As if the transport network is not over capacity already.

Nimbyland.

Other than a lot of whinging about traffic I am not sure what the Nimby arguments actually are.

Anybody who intends to build anything needs to make sure there are strong enough foundations in place that will support the building! (Old minor you can't argue with that.)
So before Bradford builds anything more in Silsden, the Town needs the foundation that is infrastructure.
Bradford own document says there can not be any more building until the infrastructure is in place, they name, Schools, Roads, Transport, sewerage, drainage, Electricity supply.
Objecting to new building before ALL of these are sorted out id not nimbyism.

Where are the jobs to justify these house numbers? The planning applications for houses in Silsden are on land which was previously classified for employment (i.e. the Tesco site and Belton Road).

The changes to the LDF Core Strategy announced today makes the situation worse by putting extra house building in the extremities of Bradford District with no thought for extra local jobs. There isn't even a comprehensive transport policy in place and no coordination with other areas. If your job is in Skipton getting there is not easy without a car.

This is the proposed house number changes

Change
-100 Haworth has gone from 500 to 400
-500 Shipley the figure drops from 1,250 to 750
+500 Burley-in-Wharfedaleâ's allocation has jumped from 200 to 700
+200 Menston, the number of houses changes from 400 to 600.
+200 Ilkley has changed from 800 to 1,000
+200 Silsden the new figure is 1,200, up by 200
-400 Bradford city centre drops from 3,500 to 3,100
-300 Bradford North East from 4,700 to 4,400

Not being a civil engineer I cannot comment on the capacities of exisitng infrastructure for sewerage and drainage. However, I can understand technical facts and no one has ever presented any! I doubt if electricty would be a problem with all the local grid connections.

Employment and housing is an interesting debate.

Silsden along with all the other towns that grew through the industrial revolution grew as the employment and housing was built simultaneously. As the original industries declined the sites they occupied often became housing. Occupants of the other houses had found work and were able to travel, intially thanks to the growth of public transport and latterly the increase in personal motorised transport. People learnt to commute and started consdiering commuting as part of life. With the arrival of the 'property owning democracy' the split between where you lived and where you work was complete. Finished by the forced sale of public rented housing.

As renting has returned then the workforce might start thinking that they might as well live near work if they are going to rent. With the cost of renting being high this seems a reasonable decision reserving any powered vehicles for leisure use.

I am sure Nimbys would not like a large factory and housing for the work force to be built anymore than they would like just the housing or the factory. Modern day nimbys are the successors to the landed gentry who were the bain of early railway expansion. Act of parliaments were needed to force them. So the wanabe landed gentry nimbys are going to have to put up with the heavy hand or government forcing the issue.

With the proximity of a commuter railway Silsden is an obvious choice for expanding housing for those who need to commute to work in the big cities. Currently I do not see any big move towards employers providing the houses for their employees as they did during the industrial revolution. Not out of altuism but neccessity so generally houses were made to minimum standard they could get away with. Salt and the like were exceptions.

Houses built today are generally built to the lowest permissable standard. Generally the method of construction does not seem to have changed since the Romans. If houses were built like cars then the cost would fall and the quality rise. So far i have seen little to suggest this is likely to happen soon. However that is really a different debate.

The cost of building a house is secondary the the piece of land its sat on.
