Few can deny that Bradford is getting its regeneration act together, especially in the city centre. The City Park and Mirror Pool is a joy and work is gathering pace on the Westfield shopping centre at the heart of the town.

There are few things worse for the morale of a city centre than empty retail shops or office blocks.

The much-trumpeted £42 billion HS2 high-speed rail link between Yorkshire and London might shave journey times down a little, but it will do nothing for businesses in Bradford. Or, at least, that’s the over-riding view put forward in a survey carried out by the Bradford Chamber of Commerce among its members, and it is difficult to disagree.

Bradford Council’s Core Strategy document, which went on display in Bradford yesterday and which sets out house-building plans for the coming years, does not make for pleasant reading for anyone who values the beautiful green spaces across our district.

It is extremely satisfying to see money made by nefarious means being ploughed back into the community, so the new initiative by West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns Williamson is very welcome.
8:50am Thursday 13th February 2014
Bradford Council’s latest proposal to radically relax planning restrictions in areas of the city centre is a welcome move to try to end the blight of empty shops that exists in some parts of the town centre.

Everyone should have a right to a roof over their heads in a civilised society, which is why we have a network of social housing providers for those who cannot afford to buy or privately rent their own home.

Alcohol-fuelled violence continues to be a major concern for people who want to enjoy a night out, and it does seem strange that someone who has admitted a vicious assault in a pub is just given a caution.

The passage of time has perhaps for some lent the horrific murders committed by Peter Sutcliffe the air of a historical event that has passed into the nation’s collective subconsciousness as a terrible yet familiar episode.

It is nothing short of outrageous that an out-of-court settlement reached between Bradford Council and the Government over the cost to the Council of the Government withdrawing support for a waste management project has been adjudged confidential.

While there is no suggestion that the future of Bradford City is anything but rosy at the moment, moves by a supporters’ group to have it declared a community asset are a sensible way of helping safeguard it for the future.
