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.

Feel free to browse our website and contact us if there's something you feel needs our attention.

Skate Park Campaign

Skate Park Campaign

Published: 29 Jan 20

Who doesn’t love a good skate park? Even if you daren’t have a go yourself, many of our younger residents are quite prepared to launch themselves off the edge into sweeping bends, flying leaps and death defying spins and landings. Looking at the current state of Burley Skate Park, it’s time it had a revamp. Improvements to the skate park don’t necessarily have to come from public money, and there have been some great public campaigns of late that have demonstrated our strength of community when it comes to fundraising.
