Planning Issues and Localism: Is it Working? WARD to hold Public Meeting

Wharfedale & Airedale Review Development is hosting an important public meeting about planning, housing, infrastructure and localism and the impact on local communities of these topics.

All interested parties are invited to join WARD at 1.00 pm on Saturday, 21 March 2015 at the Clarke Foley Centre in Ilkley.

Admission is free as the meeting is being funded by Wharfedale & Airedale Review Development but voluntary contributions to our fighting fund will be welcome on the day.

The meeting will be attended by at least three local MPs, namely Stuart Andrew MP (Pudsey); Greg Mulholland MP (Leeds North West) and Philip Davies MP (Shipley);  and also by a number of local councillors from both Leeds and Bradford.  Other MPs have been invited and we await replies.

Everyone who cares about our area and the loss of Green Belt for housing development is strongly urged to attend and make their views known to our politicians and councillors.  WARD intends to conduct the meeting on a fairly informal basis but will conclude with a final ‘David Dimbleby’ style Question Time session.  A full timetable and programme for this event will be available shortly on this website.  If further information is required please contact:
