Welcome Pack



If you are new to the village and have not yet received a Welcome Pack please ask in the Library, Surgery or Post Office or email: denholmetc@gmail.com

One resident said: “As a new resident in Denholme, I just wanted to say what a really nice gesture to leave me the above pack.  I am local so know Denholme quite well but this has some useful information in and was appreciated.”

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. 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 .

  2. Bradford Council look after the Park and the Street Cleaning Team come regularly to empty bins. You could ring 01274 431000 to make a complaint or go online to http://www.bradford.gov.uk to report dog fouling, full litter bins etc. Denholme Town Council will also pass your concerns on to the Street Cleaning Team.

  3. I am often out and about by the park – the amount of rubbish is horrible and blows over only to get trapped in the fencing of the pens nearest the far edge of the park. Is there anything that can be done? It has a massive impact on everyone’s feelings about our local environment.
