Planning applications

All Planning applications in the Bradford District go to Bradford Council Planning Department. All Parish Councils like Denholme are consulted on the planning applications in their area (parish). Our Town Council discusses planning applications at either their full Council meeting (3rd Tuesday of the month) or their Planning Committee (1st Tuesday of the month) in the Mechanics. Agendas and minutes are published here on our website.

  1. My grandparents Edward and Henrietta Southwell lived (I believe in Mary Street) in the 1950’s, he worked in a tannery I believe. I stayed with them for a while and remember going to Keithley school, I remember my grandad playing bowls in the park and also the railway

  2. Wonder if anyone had thought about putting a bench around the other side of the park .I walk my dog most days and she runs around with a couple of dogs we stay well away from the childrens play area .Also the football pitch . A bench would be very welcome by people walking dogs in that area .

  3. There is a scoping planning enquiry for 112 houses off Long Causeway, Denholme on green belt land. This would have access either from Long Causeway onto A629 near the S bend or via Seven Acres. The application is on the Bradford website and comments are asked for. Whilst this is a scoping application I feel comments would be useful in objecting to this.
    Ref no 18/00787/SCR

  4. Please can you let me know how to get a welcome to Denholme pack for someone who’s just moved back in to the village after years away?

  5. I’ve asked a question on here before but not received an answer, hopefully this time I’ll be more successful.
    Please can you tell me how I can get hold of copies of the 2nd “our book” by Denholme Elders? I’ve asked the group but they don’t know where the left over copies went.
    Thanks in anticipation of a reply this time.

    • Hi Lynn
      The Town Council has some copies left and we have been putting them in the Welcome Pack. They were found in the Mechanics upstairs in a box by a caretaker. I can let you have a copy if we can arrange for me to leave it somewhere or with someone in the Mechanics for you to pick up.

Please talk to us!
