Bingley Road new planning consultation


An email from Bellway Homes gives the following information: 

I email this afternoon on behalf of Bellway Homes to inform you of a forthcoming public consultation event at Kirklands Community Centre in relation to the proposed residential development on land at Bingley Road, Menston.

As you will be aware there is significant planning history associated with the site having previously been granted outline planning consent to Taylor Wimpey. It is now the intention of Bellway Homes to submit a detailed planning application on the same site to Bradford Metropolitan District Council for the residential development of up to 135 dwellings on this Replacement Unitary Development Plan (RUDP) housing allocation site.

At this current time we wish to inform you of the public event which will take the form of a drop in consultation event between 3.30pm and 7pm on Thursday 15th June 2017. Representatives of Bellway Homes and their consultancy team will be available at the event to discuss the development proposals.

We invite you to publish these details on the Parish Council website and circulate details to interest groups and residents of Menston.

It is our intention to distribute an information leaflet to residents living in the immediate vicinity of the site early next week providing details of the event and including a copy of the draft planning layout. We will of course also provide a copy of this leaflet to the Parish Council at the time of distribution and copies will be available on the Johnson Mowat website to view.

The development team are currently drafting information boards. Those boards will be uploaded for viewing on our website from the date of the event should residents be unable to attend.

Should you wish to discuss any of the above in the meantime please get in touch. Further details will be provided in due course.

Kind regards,


Becky Lomas MRTPI

Senior Planner
