Welcome to the Burley Parish Council Website

 

As a council, we make all kinds of decisions on issues that affect the residents of Burley. Probably the most common topics that we get involved with are planning matters (for which we are statutory consultees), managing open spaces and campaigning for and delivering better services and facilities.

 

Parish councils have limited powers to make decisions, but we do have the ability to negotiate with, and the power to influence, those other organisations that do make the final decisions, typically Bradford Metropolitan District Council. The organisations that make the final decisions know that a parish council gives the best reflection of how a community feels about something and its views will be taken seriously.

 

 

Parish Council Administration at the Present Time

 In light of recent government announcements the Parish Council are responding to changing circumstances by modifying working arrangements.

The team in the office will work from home. An alternative contact number will be made available on voice mail, and e-mail will still be responded to in the normal way. 

Parish Council meetings are now being held remotely but are still open to members of the public. Please see the 'Meetings' section of the website for more information.
