Covering the villages of Wilsden and Harecroft

Wilsden Parish Council is delighted to have been awarded the Foundation Level Award from Local Council Award Scheme  run by the National Association of Local Councils with the Yorkshire Association of Local Councils.

The criteria for the award is peer assessed and designed to ensure that the council meets the standards set by the parish council sector. The scheme is intended to provide councils with the tools to further improve performance, something we always strive to do.


Wilsden Parish Council is seeking more detailed information on the views of residents on the numbers of larger houses that can be built in the area up to 2030. We have produced a short online survey that will only take a few minutes to complete. The survey can be found here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/wilsdennp and consultation will be open until August 26th.

An article has been published on the British Gymnastic website about the Blue Plaque unveiling ceremony which took place in March 2019 in memory of Wilsden born Olympic Gymnast, Carrie Pickles.  The Blue Plaque is displayed outside Carrie's birthplace on 149 Main Street, Wilsden.
