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) in the DMI Community Centre. It was agreed at the Full Council meeting held on 17th September 2019 that plannig applications will no longer be considered at a Planning Committee meetings due to the small number of application at present.
Previous minutes of the meetings can be found on the Meetings, Agendas and Minutes page.
The Town Council’s Planning Committee is chaired by Councillor Steve Nunn and considers the planning applications and other planning and development related issues affecting our village. As well as the smaller applications for such things as home extensions and improvements, garages and smaller building projects, the Committee also takes the lead in the Town Council’s response to much larger issues.
Our village has had a number of major planning issues to consider. We have also been involved in the consultations regarding Bradford Council’s Local Development Framework, the local plan which will guide and shape development in the city over the next fifteen years or so.
