ILKLEY'S NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT ILKLEY

Ilkley Parish Council is seeking to create a Neighbourhood Plan which helps explore how to provide much-needed local housing, support high street shops, develop local job opportunities and provide local amenities that meet the needs of our local community.

The Neighbourhood Plan provides you with the opportunity to identify key issues for Ilkley and shape how future planned growth will look and where it might go, but it is not a tool to stop development.

The Neighbourhood Plan will bring the community together to share ideas and build consensus about needs and priorities for Ilkley. The Plan is important for everyone! Ilkley residents must vote at a referendum to adopt it and if people vote in favour it will then become a legal document whereby any decisions on future planning applications will be required to be made in accordance with the Neighbourhood Plan.

This is your opportunity to make your views known. Please click here to download the Ilkley Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire. You can also complete the questionnaire online here.

 

 
CAR PARKING IN ILKLEY

Car parking is a well-known and widespread problem throughout Ilkley. There is simply not enough capacity for commuters, shoppers and residents. The lack of capacity causes people to park on many of Ilkley's narrow roads causing obstruction for residents and users of the pavements.

If you support the need for additional car parking capacity including a commuters' car park please sign the Parish Council's petition. The Parish Council would like the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council to debate this matter which requires 1,500 signatures.

The petition is available here: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/car-parking-in-ilkley

Public Participation

Members of the public and press are entitled by law to attend all meetings of the Council BUT may not participate in the meetings.

However, early in the Agenda of all meetings there is a “Public participation” slot at which point the meeting is adjourned for any member of the public to speak. This is essentially an opportunity for residents to put questions to Council. No decisions may be taken at this time because by law Councillors must have notice of business. However, action may be taken. This will either be in the form of a future agenda item for discussion by Councillors, or the Parish Clerk will follow up and report back.

When making observations on planning applications, members of the public should provide only ADDITIONAL information to that which they may have already provided in writing to the Parish Council and/or Bradford Council.

Members of the public and the press will be excluded by resolution during consideration of business of a confidential nature under the Public Bodies Admissions to Meetings Act 1960 s1(2).

The Town Hall Council Chamber is accessible by lift and accessible toilet facilities are provided.

 
Planning Department

The Planning Department is a Bradford Metropolitan District Council department and is quite separate from Ilkley Parish Council.

IF YOU WISH TO CONTACT A PLANNING OFFICER IT MUST BE DONE VIA THE PLANNING CALL SYSTEM ON 01274 434605.

Please note: There is no longer a Planning Department based at Ilkley Town Hall. All Officers have now been re-located to Shipley Town Hall.
