A new planning strategy that estimates 200 new homes will appear in Wilsden – with implications for the green belt – will be discussed during a public meeting in the village hall next week.

Wilsden Parish Council has arranged the event at 7.30pm on Wednesday following the recent approval by Bradford Council of its Local Plan Core Strategy.

The document sets out the council’s planning policies and the evidence on which they are based. This includes the assessment of housing and the number of new homes the council believes will be required to meet local ‘need’ between now and 2030.

It anticipates up to 200 homes will be added to Wilsden, and suggests this may require “some local green belt changes”.

The LPCS will be subject to public examination by an inspector, who will test whether the plan is legally compliant, deliverable and evidence-based.
