You are invited to share your views on exciting plans for a development of approximately 150 new homes on land at Bolton Road and Brown Bank Lane to the north east of Silsden.

Land at Bolton Road/Brown Bank Lane was removed from the Green Belt in 1998. Part of the site is now identified by Bradford Council as a housing site in the draft Local Plan, and the remainder of the site has been identified by Bradford Council’s Strategic Land Assessment as being unconstrained and suitable for housing development.

Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire is proposing to deliver a range of much needed 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom quality homes alongside new areas of public open space. 20% of the new homes will be affordable homes, available for either discounted rent or purchase.

This website has been created to present further details of the proposed development and to provide you with the opportunity to give feedback. Once this process is concluded a detailed planning application will then be submitted to the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council (Bradford Council). 

Responses to this consultation are invited from now until the 4th October 2021.


Your views are important to us 

As part of the online consultation, we are asking members of the local community and other interested parties to take part in an online questionnaire. 

Please complete the feedback form provided on the Have Your Say section of this website.   

To make sure that your views are considered please complete the online questionnaire on or before 4th October 2021. 

Further consultation will be undertaken by Bradford Council once the planning application has been submitted, when there will be another opportunity for comments to be made on the planning application.
