PEOPLE across the Keighley district are being encouraged to have their say as part of two Bradford Council consultations.

Views are sought on a strategy aimed at supporting people to become more active, with figures showing that 39.1 per cent of adults and 58.7 per cent of children in the Bradford district do not currently meet chief medical officer recommendations for activity levels.

And feedback is also invited on a good food strategy, designed to transform how foods are produced and examine ways of reducing health inequalities.

Work on both strategies has been ongoing for around 18 months. Bradford Council has been working in collaboration with partner organisations, businesses and groups dedicated to improving residents' health and wellbeing.

Councillor Sarah Ferriby, the council's executive member for healthy people and places, said: "What we eat and how much exercise we take is becoming more and more important to all of us.

"We really do need everyone – residents, businesses and the voluntary sector – to get involved and have a say in shaping the future of both these plans, as they will impact on our future generations."
