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 now work from home more often. An alternative mobile contact number is now available 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.

The only public toilet in the village is by the memorial crosses outside the front of the Queens Hall and is open every day between 8am and 6pm. It has an automatic locking system to stop use during evenings and overnight. Although the toilet was a part of the full refurbishment of the Queens Hall there have been some issues that have meant it hasn’t always been available. It is now open and cleaned regularly.
