Find out about how planning works in Calderdale

Are you interested in Calderdale Planning issues but not sure how to find out what’s going on, or how to make your voice heard?

The Council’s website and on- line planning portal is a mine of information  – and offers quick ways to keep up and have your say. You may have read that from October 19 the Council will be consulting local people about its long term Core Strategy . This includes preferred options for how to meet the need to provide 600 new homes a year in Calderdale between now and 2029.

In October and November, the Halifax North and East Team will be holding sessions in local libraries in Halifax North and East to show you how to use the electronic system, including how to find out about planning applications near your home.There will be  more news on this later

In the meantime, why not drop into the Beechwood Library Open Day on Saturday 15 September between 10 and 4, where the team can show you how to find out about local planning applications?
