Ilkley Parish Council on the Streets PDF Print E-mail

The Council is in the process of consulting Ilkley’s residents about the streets of our town - what events there should be on the streets and the town’s future development. Councillor Stephen Butler, Chairman of Ilkley Parish Council says, “We want to hear what the people of Ilkley have to say, their views are very important and we hope that there will be many responses to our surveys. We also value your feedback on the activities available for young people in Ilkley”.

There is a survey on Survey Monkey about the events which are held from time to time on The Grove, for example, the Continental Market. The Ilkley Business Forum and Parish Council are working together on this. “We would really like to know your views on how good events are and the effect of events on people and business”, says Helen Rhodes, Chairman of Ilkley Business Forum. Fill in the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/D782J2C

Ilkley Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Plan Team want to know what everyone thinks about the new Plan being put together on the future development of Ilkley and Ben Rhydding. The Plan will have profound influence on the number of houses, shops and employment sites built between now and 2030, and where they are built. We want as many people as possible to comment on the maps and documents available to inspect around the town and give us your views. The Draft Plan is available to view at the Town Hall, the Library, the Visitor Information Centre, Clarke Foley Centre, Christchurch, Tivoli Café, Ben Rhydding Methodist Church and St John’s Church. There is also an online form at http://parishcouncil.ilkley.org/neighbourhood-plan.html.

Ilkley Parish Council is working to improve our town and welcomes the views of our residents about what is needed.

 
Car Parking Review PDF Print E-mail

Bradford Council has undertaken a comprehensive study of the existing parking arrangements in Ilkley to try and solve long-standing issues with parking in the town.The full report can now be viewed HERE.

Bradford Council say that the study will be used to inform their short, medium and long term decision making around the management of both on-street and off-street, as well as residential parking.

The report states that the biggest issues caused by parking tend to be within 400 metres of Ilkley railway station, although not all the problems are caused by commuters.

Many shoppers struggle to find a space and local residents are sometimes obstructed in their own street.

Coun Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council's Executive Member for Regeneration, Planning and Transport, said: "We recognise Ilkley has different issues compared with other parts of the Bradford district.

“Ilkley is a great tourist destination as well as a place where people live and work and because so many people make short journeys into town by car, parking is at a premium.

“We need to look at all the options and take into consideration the needs of commuters, shoppers, visitors and residents to arrive at a solution that suits the needs of Ilkley.

“We’re currently reviewing the recommendations in the report and will announce a way forward as soon as we can.”

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.
