Bell Lane Car Park
Jointly working together District Councillors, the Parish Council and Wakefield Council are pleased to announce that work has commenced on improvements to the car park.
After joint working with District Councillors and the Parish Council, plans have been drawn up to improve the surface water issue at Hawthorn Grove and All Saints' Church. Ongoing inspections have been taking place since late 2018 and some levelling work commenced in January \ February 2019. This was in preparation for the further scheduled works due to commence over the forthcoming weeks.

At the Parish Council meetings consideration is given to current planning applications received by Wakefield Council. This includes applications to fell trees. It is the Parish Council's policy to object to all tree felling applications unless the tree is dead, dying or in a dangerous condition. They do this to preserve the trees in the village.
