PEOPLE with ideas on how Keighley could be improved have been asked to help allocate £33m in Government funding.

The board in charge of the Keighley Towns Fund is looking for a new Chair and for new members to join them.

Keighley was awarded £33.6m via the Government’s Towns Fund for its Town Investment Plan in 2021 and has since has been allocated up to £20m to deliver a Long Term Plan.

The Keighley Town Board is hoping to recruit volunteers who can use their skills and local knowledge to deliver these plans which will improve the town centre, boost infrastructure, provide jobs and bring wider cultural and social benefits to the town and local area.

The board is made up of representatives from local businesses as well as charitable and voluntary organisations, with support from Bradford Council.

Bradford Council’s Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, Transport and Planning Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw said: “We’re looking for people to join us with expertise in one or more of the following areas - funding strategies, urban regeneration, community representation, risk management, inclusivity and diversity, and sustainability.”

If you are interested in joining the board, either as a board member, chair of the board or vice chair, please complete the application form and submit to: by March 13.
