Welcome Pack



If you are new to the village and have not yet received a Welcome Pack please ask in the Library or Surgery 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. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. I am a regular dog walker in the park,disgusted with all the rubbish and dog poo,lived in denholme for years and never seen it so bad,also bins so full you cant put your poo bags in.

    • 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.

Please talk to us!
