Covering the villages of Wilsden and Harecroft

The public meeting held on Tuesday March 22nd 2016 on the progress of the campaign to save Wilsden Post Office was very well attended by approximately 70+ residents.

 If you were unable to attend the meeting but would like to support the re-opening of a post office in Wilsden, the Post Office questionnaire and Pledge form can be downloaded here :

http://www.wilsdenparishcouncil.gov.uk/wilsden-post-office-working-group

In order to fund the company through loans and grants some initial investment is required. Our preference is for a larger number of members to make a relatively small donation rather than a smaller number making larger donations.  Based upon this we are looking for people interested in becoming members who will donate £20.

If you wish to become a member of the Community Post Office please sign and fill in the Pledge form at the bottom of the questionnaire.

Please return completed forms to Wilsden Parish Council at Wilsden Village Hall by Monday 11th April 2016.

Please see the e-mail below from Bradford Metropolitan District Council regarding the proposed traffic calming measures in Wilsden commencing 22nd February 2016.

 MAIN STREET, WILSDEN – PROPOSED TRAFFIC CALMING MEASURES

This letter is to inform you that work on the above scheme is programmed to commence on 22nd February 2016. The section of Main Street between Crooke Lane and Moss Row will be affected by the proposed measures.

The measures to be introduced at this time comprises of the introduction of eight sets of “speed cushions” and two “speed tables” within the length of highway indicated above. Other measures are proposed, but these will be undertaken a later date.

The works should be completed before 7th March but this is dependant on the prevailing weather conditions. This period may be a little longer or shorter should manpower and other resources be available.

To enable the work to be carried out in a safe manner, and to comply with Health and Safety Regulations it will be necessary to undertake the proposals under traffic management control. This will involve the use of “stop and go” boards or possibly traffic signal control. Pedestrian access to property / businesses will be maintained at all times. However, it may be necessary to prohibit parking in the immediate vicinity of particular areas of works in order to maintain the flow of vehicular traffic.

Please take great care when passing these works for your safety and that of our operatives. It may be essential to extend the working shift if we encounter difficulties during the permitted hours. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Please respect our workers space and safety by driving carefully and slowly through the road works.. Feedback from our workers shows that too many drivers travel far too fast through road works. Everyone is entitled to a safe workplace.

 Every effort will be made to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and Traffic and Highways (North) apologise for any inconvenience caused to you.

The work will be carried out by contractors under the supervision of Bradford Council’s Highway staff. If you have any concerns about the work please contact this department in the first instance, on the above contact details.

 Yours faithfully,

 Stewart Pedley

 Senior Engineer

Traffic and highways (North)

Once the works on Main Street are complete, the proposed works on Crack Lane and Lingfield will commence (with the residents of the latter two roads being informed accordingly at the appropriate time).
