LONG-AWAITED plans to increase car-parking space at Silsden-Steeton railway station have been submitted to rail chiefs. The expansion – which would reduce the need for drivers to park on surrounding streets – could include a new deck on top of the existing tarmac car park.

The party was first held in September 1987 and is unique in that it is the only event in the Bradford district dedicated to residents aged 90 and over. Once again there was free entertainment and afternoon tea was served to guests from Addingham, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Ilkley and Menston. HM the Queen was represented by Mr David Pearson, Deputy Lieutenant for West Yorkshire and other honoured guests were: Ilkley Town Mayor Councillor Stephen Butler and Mrs Kate Butler, John Grogan MP, and Councillor Brian Mann and Mrs Sylvia Mann.
KEIGHLEY MP John Grogan says he is “very hopeful” that an environmental permit for a controversial waste-to-energy incinerator plant in the town will be rejected. He was speaking after the Environment Agency received an application for a permit at the site, alongside the Aire Valley trunk road at Marley. “From my discussions with the agency my understanding is that the formal consultation period is likely to take place later in 2018 and a final decision could take up to a year,” said Mr Grogan.
