Public meeting held in Addingham to debate housing proposals
8:00am Friday 14th March 2014 in News
Addingham Parish Council held a public meeting on Bradford’s Core Strategy.
The strategy is a central part of the forthcoming Bradford District Local Plan and currently recommends 200 new homes should be built in the village by 2030.
More than 70 people attended the event at Bracken Ghyll Golf Club, which included a lively question and answer session.
Coun Adrian Naylor said: “The parish council was very concerned that the documents which make up the Core Strategy are six inches thick and very difficult to cross reference if you are viewing them online.
“It was the clear view of the meeting that not everyone had access to the internet and would be forced to travel to Ilkley Library to see the nearest hard copy.”
Coun Catherine Coates, chairman of Addingham Parish Council, said: “We were concerned that everyone should have access to a copy of the Core Strategy so we have purchased a copy at a cost of £140 which we have placed in the library.
“On the days the library is shut, Mondays and Wednesdays, it can be viewed by appointment in the Old School Room above the library.”
The period for making comment to Bradford Council closes on March 31.
