Denholme Mechanics Institute
Plans are moving on for the community to take over the running of the Mechanics from Bradford Council from April 2018. A Community Asset Transfer is in progress and a Charity has been formed called ‘DMI Commuity Centre’ to run the community venue. A Management Committee has been set up for the day to day running. We will keep you posted.

If you would like to book a room in the Mechanics after 1 April please contact the Town Clerk on 07531 855150 or email: email@example.com

The Town Council’s Community Pot is open for this year. The application form for local groups is below and will be available from the Town Clerk, in the Library and on the notice board in the Mechanics. Groups can apply for more than one project as the money is only granted once during the financial year.

Voting will take place at the Gala on Saturday 7 July and the Council are looking into setting up an online voting system.

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.
