Micklethwaite Village Society is carrying out various improvements with cash from Bradford Council.

The money was given to the tiny village near East Morton as part of an action planning process.

Residents' complaints and ideas for improvements have been gathered in a new action plan.

The village society members spent the money in response to the concerns of fellow residents.

Some residents wanted a new community building to replace the recently closed chapel.

The society bought a marquee, trestle tables and lights to be used for some functions.

It has planted vegetation on the highest of Micklethwaite's two village greens.

The society is also making a portable noticeboard to make sure villagers know what is going on.

Council officers wrote the action plan after writing to all 139 homes in the village last summer.

More than half of the questionnaires were returned and residents also made comments at neighbourhood forum meetings.

Around 40 per cent of people wanted traffic speeds and volume reduced, and roads, walls and paths to be repaired.

Some called for a 20mph zone through the village and restrictions on heavy goods vehicles and coaches.

Shipley Area Committee will take into account the action plan's recommendations when updating its area-wide action plan.

The findings will also influence how money is spent by Bradford Council in the future.
