Have your say on Hebden Royd plans

Consultation is about to begin on the next stage of preparing the Hebden Royd and the Hill Top Parishes Neighbourhood Plan.

Drop-in consultation events will start on Saturday, April 30 and continue into May.

For the last two years Hebden Royd Town Council together with the parishes of Blackshaw, Erringden, Heptonstall and Wadsworth have been working to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for the area.

A first stage consultation in 2015 asked people to identify the issues that particularly concerned them and what they value about the area.

These next sessions will include the opportunity to review and discuss the findings of the previous consultations and hear about progress with the Neighbourhood Plan so far.

Participants will also be able to review and discuss the future ofkKey Local Sites and explore and share ideas for their particular Parish, Town and Village.

In the Hebden Bridge event specific emphasis will be placed on exploring future development options for the Valley Road Site.

These workshops will help inform content of the emerging Neighbourhood Plan, which will establish the planning framework for the area in conjunction with Calderdale Council’s Local Plan.

The sessions will be held as follows:

- Saturday, April 30: Hebden Bridge Town Hall, 10am to 2pm

- Saturday, April 30: Mytholmroyd’s Reet Royd Waater Do, 11am to 2pm

- Saturday, May 7: Heptonstall Bowing and Social Club, 10am to 1pm

- Saturday, May 14: Blackshawhead Chapel, 1pm to 4pm

- Saturday, May 21: Wadsworth Community Centre 11am to 2pm.

All of the events will operate on a drop in basis, no need to book.

Refreshments and children’s activities will be available.
