This supports my thoughts that the opposition to the Drabble site is NIMBY having the school run down your street.


Mallinson lived on Aireville Mount near the school site.Perhaps he knew the school was coming prior to his move to live in Bradford.Whatever the fact he lives in Bradford it rules out him being a "NIMBY"

I think that the Drabble House is well situated for access to the moors. It will also be easily accessible from the obvious route for a bypass to the east of the town.

Parents living on the west side of Silsden can presently approach or leave the towns schools using Kirkgate & Bolton Road via Elliott Street, Aire View, New Road (one way), Briggate (one way), Bell Square, Pickard Lane, Town Head, and Tannery corner.

Cont. There is only a single point of access to and from the East side up Howden Road via Clogg Bridge. Yes, Drabble House area could be a nice place for a school, but build the new access roads to the East side of the town first.

The new fencing, the one on the right is a new boundary fence between the school site and the retained farmland, both the wooden fence and stone wall could be removed. the footpath is to remain as is.

Does this development require planning permission? I cannot see how it would be granted on several grounds, and I am not a nimby, it does not affect me but I can see it is a hairbrained scheme which has not been thought through .Hopefully it will not happen

Looks like the access road to me Midway.

..... and from the zoom of your camera lens, the far side of Silsden looks so close ..... close enough to walk to school twice a day? ... that will be 30min there, and 30min back to home... and that will be if your child can walk across town on their own! If they have to be escorted that's 2 hours out of a parents/guardians day - it ain't going to happen - the car rules OK.

It's a bit confusing innit, all the land to the left of the new fence is to be retained as farm land. And don't forget the farm has access onto Middleway.

Yes it does require planning permission and you will be able to put your objections in. However, as BMDC are the applicants and jury you will not stop it.

The footpath, through its use over several years, ran corner to corner across the field(as can be seen on Google Earth).The council had to have the field fenced off for a certain number of years prior to development being allowed so they went ahead and fenced in denial that anyone had ever walked corner to corner

The yellow dots indicate the official footpath at the farm, any other is at the discretion of the land owner, and that includes the wooden steps over the wall.

The footpath which ran across the field was a shortcut and not an official footpath. However, before the field was fenced off the field could have been claimed as a public green space because the public had access to it for over 20 years, and there is documentation to prove this from the records of Silsden Rugby Football Club - remember when there were rugby post on the field and everyone referred to it as the dog walking field.

You are correct with that Peter, and i have the documentation. but let's not hold this school up any longer, it's been on the cards for 50 years.

If anyone is interested there is a rumour going around that a proposed plan of the position of the new school is up for consultation.

Would that be consultation about what they are doing on the Drabble House site i.e we will listen to all of the valid concerns but we are doing it anyway, or a realisation about those concerns and consideration of building it elsewhere?

I would think that our local councillors have copies of the plans which are available in Hothfield st school. They show the school in the same fields but not the same position as on the plans we were shown before. As usual Silsden council will make no comment until it is too late to change anything.

hat it is a shame that the most important decision ever made for Silsden will have no input from the people who live in Silsden. Before the land sale was agreed some people tried to bring it out into the open, but all we got from a councillor was stop moaning. Do they really care, what is needed is an open meeting so all of us can have our say for or against.

midway the ducting is for the two runs of overhead lines to be put underground at the top of the two fields, the overhead lines at the bottom of the field are to stay for now. I don't think there is any point in making any objections, no one spends £60,000 before planning permission is even applied for without knowing the outcome.

I think by keeping it low key many Silsden residents who will be affected by the school won't do anything about it. If Dale view is used for access then the car owners from North st, Pickard lane and Bolton road together with the Dale view residents who park on Dale view at the moment will have to find somewhere to park.

I doubt that parents who will be dropping their children off at the new school will park as far away as Bolton Rd or Pickard Lane as it is too far for most parents to walk these days.
It's more likely that Dale View Banklands Lane, MIddleway and streets off these roads will be affected.
Perhaps the best solution would be for all roads is the areas where there are likely to be parking issues resident parking spaces and permits should be issued.
Hopefully this should prevent parking problems.

Sorry for not making myself clear, cars belonging to owners who live on Bolton rd, Pickard lane, North st and Dale view all park on Dale view now. If Dale view is used for access then there will be parking restrictions and those car owners will have to park somewhere else.
