Labour bosses in Bradford are planning to make poor families and carers pay more Council Tax under new plans. This will directly affect 1351 families in Eccleshill Ward
We think the changes will only punish those on the lowest incomes. You can find out full details and have your say on Labour's plan here.
Our Councillors surgery is about to start at St Clare's church hall in Fagley. The entrance is off Moorside Road. We will be here from 10am until 11am.
Any issues we are happy to help.
A planning application has been submitted to Bradford Council to demolish the former Fagley Youth and Community Centre and build 131 homes on the site and the land around it.
The application for the land that has long had a covenant protecting it for ‘community use’ is owned by Newlands Community Association based nearby off Harrogate Road.
Not content with locking out local residents a few years ago, they failed to protect the Community Centre from vandals and in a final ki...ck in the teeth they are now trying to sell of the land for housing.
Councillor Geoff Reid said: “We fought alongside residents for years to protect the Centre and the land it stands on for community use. Even the former Labour leader of the Council Dave Green stepped in a few years ago promising not to remove the covenant protecting the site for local residents”.
"These plans are the ultimate betrayal of Fagley residents by Newlands and we will be reminding Labour of their promise to protect this land for the community and the Lib Dem team look forward to working with them to defend it”
Councillor Brendan Stubbs added: “We already have permission for 550-600 homes in the area. Now we should be defending land and community facilities that will serve the new and existing homes - not selling it off for more homes that will only increase the pressure on local roads, schools and other amenities”.
If you want to comment on the application you can do so online at www.planning4bradford.co.uk and in the simple search box enter the application number. 17/05678/MAF on the site you will be able to view the documents and make your views heard. Comments will close on November 24th and a decision could be made early in 2018.
The Lib Dem team will circlate comments forms to the area for people not able to comment online.

This is the flyer from the developer of the Fagley Quarry area. They are having a drop in session on 13th July to discuss their plans for the development.
With up to 600 new homes planed we urge local residents to pop in and ask them plenty of questions.
We will be holding our regular Councillors advice surgery tomorrow at St Clare's Parish Community Centre Moorside Road, Fagley, Bradford, BD2 3JE. 10am until 11am. We will have copies of the revised plans for Pilleys Mill.
Whatever the issue pop in for a chat with the Eccleshill Ward Councillors

Aged 11+? Girls football sessions starting on Thursday 13th July at Eccleshill Mechanics (Eccy Meccy). These are being run by Bradford City and run from 5pm - 6pm and are free initially. Contact the centre on (01274) 636228 for further details ⚽️
I have just received an email copy of the revised plans for the Pilley's site. Below are the new layout plans and artists impressions. These will be sent to 3000 homes in the area over the coming week or so by Opus North including a return post card.
Despite the previous consultations there is still no plan to retain the dam or mention what happens to the people who already trade and work on the site....
Following this final 'consultation' the developers are looking to put in a planning application to the Council by the end of July that would mean a decision from the Council in September or October.
I will keep updating everyone on this but Opus North will not hold a public meeting instead they are taking bookings for house calls.
