Hello everyone.

As a start we would like to apologise for the delay. With Christmas and the lockdown it has been difficult to move forward as quickly as expected.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the first stage of Listening to East Bierley. It is heartening to know we have a community willing to participate and have a voice in shaping the future of our village.

We were really pleased with the number of responses we received, and grateful for all the comments, thoughts and ideas people had.

We have seen a working draft of the Listening to East Bierley report and hope to be able to share this with you in the next few weeks.

On first reading the report has certainly helped pin point things that people feel strongly about. For instance, there are some clear messages around traffic and parking, play and recreation and the facilities and amenities in the village.

We will begin to develop an action plan after we’ve shared the report with you and this is something open for people to get involved with. We want to work with partners, the council and look at things we may be able to tackle together as a community.

Thank you again

The East Bierley Village Preservation Society and Birstall and Birkenshaw Ward Councillors
