    Baildon Town Council

Baildon Town Council provides your local services. We strive to make Baildon a better place to live, work and play. Our website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search or browse the site to 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.

What does Baildon mean to you? Perhaps it's the moor with its swooping, warbling lapwings. Maybe it's the potted meat stick or the stocks and medieval cross. Email and tell us what you think about the town where you live.

Leeds Bradford Airport have informed us that there will be a public consultation event that will be taking place on Thursday 27 September in the Bramhope Suite of the Britannia Hotel, Leeds Road, Bramhope, LS16 9JJ.

The event is taking place to outline the Airport's plans for a new Arrivals Hall, incorporating new departure gates as well as improved immigration capacity and baggage reclaim facilities. The proposal is in line with the Airport's 'Route to 2030 Strategic Development Plan' published in March 2017 and will provide capacity for up to 5m passengers from the 4m currently experienced.

The event will be open to the public between 15.30-20.30.

This is an exciting chapter in the growth of the Airport, and we are keen to ensure the prosperity the Airport brings to the Leeds City Region in terms of jobs, business development and tourism is done with the support of local communities and the local authorities. » Less
