Name of the Council
Councillors are aware that there is confusion about the roles of the Parish Council and the Parochial Church Council, and would like your views as to whether a change of name would help. Legally the Council could change its name to either a “Neighbourhood Council”, a “Community Council” or a “Village Council”. The Parish Council is an elected body, part of the local government structure in the area, and is responsible for the community HUB, for children’s play areas and pitches, and for several areas of public land around the villages of Steeton and Eastburn. In addition the Parish Council acts as a voice for the area to communicate with other organisations such as the police or Bradford Council. The Council is consulted about all major planning applications and submits comments to Bradford Council who are the planning authority.
Please send your view to the clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
A draft neighbourhood plan for Steeton, Eastburn and Silsden can be seen on the neighbourhood plan page (click on link at the left of this page). All comments welcome.
