Baildon and the Town Council

Baildon Town Council's website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search facility to browse the site and find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require then please contact us.

Baildon is located in the Aire Valley, between the city of Bradford and Rombalds Moor. Whether you still think of Baildon as a village or have embraced its new status as a town, we can all agree that Baildon is a great place to live. As a Town Council, we're proud to represent a place with such character, history and natural beauty as Baildon.

Stretching from the river at Roberts Park, along Otley Road through Charlestown and Tong Park, and up to Baildon Moor, Baildon is much more than just what is traditionally considered the village centre. Around 16,000 residents, spread across an area of approximately 16 square miles, live, work, shop and eat at locations from Charlestown to Baildon Bridge to the Coach Road.

Community spirit is strong in Baildon, with residents active in groups as diverse as the Women's Institute, Baildon Ukelele Club, churches, Baildon in Bloom, Friends of Baildon Moor and youth activities – to mention just a few.

Baildon hosts many exciting events in which the whole community come together, like August bank holiday's Harley Davidson biker rally, the Scarecrow Festival, the annual carnival and Baildon at Christmas. There's lots to see and do: the Victorian tramway at Shipley Glen runs at weekends and Roberts Park, although part of the Saltaire World Heritage Site, is within the Baildon boundary.

Baildon Library: Bradford Council starts work on the former Baildon Club

Baildon Town Council have been informed that Bradford Council has now secured the piece of land above the former Baildon Club from Greene King to accommodate the site compound during its entire period of refurbishment.

Securing this piece of land has unfortunately taken slightly more time than hoped and may have delayed the project by a few weeks, however It is hoped that this delay will be offset by the fact that we are now it is hoped avoiding disruption to the public highway on Hallcliffe. More »

Works by Bradford Council to clear that land and to create a vehicular access from Hall Cliffe will start this week (wk/c 12 December 2022). However, works to the building itself (i.e. asbestos removal and soft strip) will not now start in earnest until the New Year. Bradford Council will write to all residents living on Perseverance Street facing that land this week to inform them of the council's intentions.

It is best to communicate direct with Bradford Council with any queries you have as they are managing this project, not Baildon Town Council. This can be either via your Bradford Councillors or through the Bradford Council Switchboard on 01274 432111

As ever we will keep you informed via our website and newsletter.

Councillor Gill Dixon, Chair of Baildon Town Council. » Less
