CAR PARKING IN ILKLEY PDF Print E-mail

Ilkley Parish Council is extremely concerned about the problems with car parking throughout the town. The Council would like a full review of on and off-street car parking to be carried out by Bradford Metropolitan District Council. Ultimately, the Parish Council would like an increase in car parking capacity to be provided. In order for Bradford MDC to debate the matter, a total of 1,500 signatures are required on a petition. Ilkley Parish Council has set up an online petiton which we would like residents and visitors to sign. The petition is available at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/car-parking-in-ilkley

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PDF Print E-mail

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.
