Unused brown bin collection by Bradford Council

Following the introduction of the chargeable garden waste collection service a programme has now been put in place to collect the garden waste brown bins for residents who want them removing.

Residents living in Cullingworth, Denholme, Harden, Bingley, Eldwick, Gilstead, Crossflatts, Micklethwaite, Long Lee, Riddlesden, and roads off Aireworth Road are being asked to leave their bins out this weekend – Saturday and Sunday, 3 and 4 December.

A box van and bin wagon will empty any bins which have materials in them before removing them.

Foster Park

‘Friends of Foster Park’ – there has been chat on Facebook ‘New Living in Denholme’ group about the state of the Park and considering the cutbacks that Bradford Council could be making in the future it may be an idea to form a ‘Friends of ‘ group to join forces to improve the state of the park and work with the Council Wardens and Bradford Council.
There is info about Friends of Parks groups in Bradford athttp://www.bradforddistrictparks.org/friends/

Planning applications

All Planning applications in the Bradford Council Metropolitan 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.


We currently have only one vacancy for a Councillor and would love someone to join us. We can and do make a difference to the village and have current issues of road safety and planning to deal with. See the ad below and contact Alison at denholmetc@gmail.com or by ringing or texting  07531 855150

  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. Just driven around the corner next to hoyles garage and they have removed the roadworks there.great except the road is an absolute disgrace there has been no cleaning of mud and stones and the tarmac that has been put over the roadworks is unbelievable how they can call that a road surface I do not know.
    As a motorcyclist this is an accident waiting to happen .

  3. Wondered if something could be done about the state of old road, mainly by the farm. It is very unsafe after the recent heavy rains and floods, not safe to walk or ride on
