Holme Valley Parish Council

Welcome to Holme Valley Parish Council

World War I Commemorative Event

Thank you to everyone who supported the Parish Council at the World War 1 ‘Holmfirth Remembers’ event last weekend.

It was a brilliant weekend, with a fine display of war time vehicles, vintage music and clothes.  The Dakota fly past was incredible and, thankfully, the weather was in our favour so the crowds flocked to see the multitude of displays; the Sands Recreation Ground was buzzing.

Hopefully, the event will be repeated again next year.

 Neighbourhood Plan

The Localism Act introduced an opportunity for parish and town councils and local community groups to draw up plans for the use and development of land in their area. This is called a Neighbourhood Development Plan. The first step is for the organisation to apply to Kirklees Council to designate a neighbourhood area.

Holme Valley Parish Council has recently received approval from Kirklees Council and the Peak District National Park Authority to have a Neighbourhood Area designated. The designation application can be viewed at http://www.kirklees.gov.uk/business/regeneration/neighbourhoodAreas.aspx

The Council recently gave a presentation on the proposed production of the Neighbourhood Plan, at the Annual Parish Meeting and is now looking for representatives of local community groups to get involved in the preparation of the Plan.  If you would like to get involved, please contact the Clerk.
