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.

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.

Recently we have been consulted on applications for housing in the village and work is progressing on the New Mill site where 86 homes are being built and at the New Road site the social housing  is completed.

We are also involved in the ongoing monitoring of activity at Erlings Works to ensure that nuisance caused by heavy – and extremely smelly – lorries passing through or close to our village is minimised, and any issues around odours and planning applications.

  1. Is planning permission required for a new access to a field and construction in the field off Trough Lane between Sandbeds Farm and Lane Bottom and have contractors been given permission to park on Trough Lane, given that, according to signage, it’s a Clearway with no stopping allowed?

    • I believe it’s Sandbeds Farm and think the owner may be a Mr Tidswell?
      I don’t know the post code and search on BDMC’s planning website quoting Trough Lane, Denholme showed no applications for planning approval.
