Mickyfin I was told they where putting down an all weather pitch, if they are well done Bradford council, it might stop dog fouling.

Just a little bit surprised that Grandad hasn't replied to this, perhaps he hasn't seen it yet.

Wow, if this is true I am well impressed, however, I remain somewhat dubious. The relaying of the pitch at Utley has taken forever, held up by adverse weather. It also begs the question as to whether they will allow the Gala to chew up what I guess will be an expensive surface!! Drainage issues will also have to be addressed.

Well Victor as far as i know an all weather pitch was never envisaged, new drainage pipes are being installed and the pitch re turfed, at a cost of 56000, 2000 of which is the 106 payment from the Snell development. now i can't be absolutely certain but it looks like the heavy vehicles used on Gala day will now use the same positions as this year, being nearer the banking at Banklands ave.

Having spoken to a committee member of Silsden RLFC this PM I was somewhat surprised by his comment that Bradford Council had been unaware that heavy plant had been previously put on site on the rugby field for Silsden Gala. This individual considered that this activity cannot be allowed to continue once this new pitch has been relaid.

Anyone would think Bradford owned the park and paid for the rugby pitch work to be done. In actual fact the people of silsden own the park. The work has been carried out using S106 money which is money allocated for the park maintenance because of all the new houses they have been building.

The Gala funfair uses the perimeter of the pitch, not the pitch itself, at least not for heavy machinery. I have the pictures!

Peter, we seem to be in a grey area here, it would seem to me that Bradford Council who maintain Silsden Playing Fields for the benefit of the people of Silsden, would expect any remedial works that are carried out should have their tacit approval, since, in this instance, they would appear to be meeting some of the cost of relaying drains & turf, etc. on the top rugby field. As for the placement of the gala funfair, particularly the heavy generators, surely these would be better placed at the northern end of the site where it would not be necessary to cross over the playing surface.

Mickyfin please could you ask the committee member if it is to be an all weather pitch or not, because I have been told that it is by two different people.

Gossip does nobody any good, please see the agreed Town Council minutes on the home page of this site dated, Thurs 20 Jul 2017.

So Grandad just to make it clear all the money to be spent in the park is from s106 monies collected by Bradford council for houses built in Silsden.

Grandad, I rather object to your implication that I am spreading gossip. I got my information from the 'horse's mouth'. This person, who I do not wish to name, had been in conversation with an official from Bradford Council who had been shocked to find out that heavy machinery had been allowed to cross & be positioned on the playing area of the rugby pitch & that this arrangement, in his opinion, cannot be allowed to continue since there has been damage caused to the exciting drainage system which had been found to be inadequate. As to the cost of drainage work & the returfing of the playing area, the total cost would, it seems, to have been 56,000, 2000 of which has been covered by a payment of 2000 from Snell's builders. Does one assume that the bulk of the works been carried out is being funded by Bradford Council. I stand to be corrected on this matter.

Peter stated above the heavy vehicles do not and never have been on the pitch, so they can't be blamed for any damage.
If however somebody who doesn't want to be name has told Bradford that there have been heavy vehicles on the pitch, then one as to wonder why.

HH I asked Grandad because without actually saying it he gives the impression that all the money for the work in the park was from s 106 money. See Grandad's comment re Gossip, and midways 5 Order of priority. And as regards Mallinson I have spoken to him twice, once at the town hall meeting, and the second time was over the phone when he told me a pack of lies about the school site.

Victor, I can't see where you think grandad gives any impression re the money.
Possible it is all in your head, and I have always believed that impressions can be very deceptive.

There would appear to be a clique on this forum who have views that do not appear allow any poster to have an opposing view. I am all for 'banter' on a forum, however, I do object to certain individuals who think that their view is the only one that is acceptable. This forum needs to get its house in order, we all have opinions, but these responses to postings must take into account the fact that posters have different views. Nobody wants to feel like @why do I bother'.

Silsden Rugby Club were not able to play many of their winter matches on the Silsden Park site due to the state of the pitch.

The drainage previously laid was blocked so a feasibility study was carried out to ascertain what the best course of action was:

The contract is to install new primary and secondary drainage, cultivate topsoil, surface grade the pitch then re-seed it.

It is envisaged that the pitch will be playable for the start of next season. The contractor (Allan Chappelow) will mow the site and undertake 10 cuts.

The contract value is 54k and the funding was from S106 (28K) and Capital Resource (26K).
