A PLAN that will help shape the future of Bingley is now out to public consultation.

Bingley Town Council has completed a first draft of the Bingley Neighbourhood Development Plan.

Neighbourhood plans gives communities the power to prepare a shared development vision for their area. This Neighbourhood Plan will shape, direct and help to deliver sustainable development by influencing the planning policies and decisions made by Bradford Council.

Bingley Town Council would like to know what residents think of the policies and proposals in the Plan and has invited feedback from all residents and businesses in the Parish.

The consultation runs until Thursday April 4.

The plan, supporting documents and a survey questionnaire are available on the Council’s website www.bingleytowncouncil.gov.uk but if you wish to read a paper copy, one is available at Bingley Library and others can be viewed by appointment at the Town Council offices in Myrtle Place.

Call 07529 222679 to make an appointment.

Comments can be made online via the electronic survey when you look at the draft Neighbourhood Plan online or you can complete a paper copy that is available from the Town Clerk.

Two drop-in events will be held at the Town Council offices in Myrtle Place, Bingley, on Saturday (Feb 24) and Sunday March 24 2024 between 10am and 2pm, where the Neighbourhood Plan is available to read and you can also ask questions.
