New parish centre

The council is in the process of rebuilding its parish centre in line with future council and community use. Here you can find monthly updates on how this project is progressing. You can also track how our planning application is progressing through Wakefield Council’s planning portal using ref: 19/02156/FUL.

In our September 2019 meeting, Councillor Ripley reported that the council’s application for planning permission has been submitted, and we are currently waiting for an outcome.

In our October 2019 meeting, Councillor Ripley updated councillors on an asbestos survey to be carried out on 10 October 2019, in connection with the rebuild.

In our November 2019 meeting, Councillor Bennett informed councillors that the asbestos survey could not be carried out without the library being emptied of its resources, and so it would now be deferred to the demolition phase, where it will be carried out as a matter of course. Councillor Ripley informed members that WMDC hvae flagged an issue on the planning application regarding a neighbouring property, and a meeting would take place on 18 November. Councillor Bennett requested that off-site parking be considered at this point in the application process.
