Kirkheaton Neighbouhood Plan

The Council continues to work with the people in Kirkheaton on a Neighbourhood Plan for Kirkheaton (Part of Kirkburton Civil Parish and encompassing the ward of Kirkheaton excluding the areas of Battyeford & Colne Bridge to the North-North East of the ward).

The majority of the work is being carried out by Kirkheaton Future, a local group made up of a cross-section of the village.  Everyone is encouraged to get involved and many people have already taken part by completing questionnaires and attended various events in the village.

Following the publication and consultationon the first draft plan, Kirkheaton Future is working with Kirklees Council to incorporate the findings from the Strategic Environmental Assessment, as well as reviewing the areas put forward as suitable for development.
