The following has been received from John Scarborough of Heptonstall Parish Council:
Following the Consultation Exercise carried out in November 2016 the Parish Council has decided not to proceed further with a possible new car park on Valley View Road due to lack of community support.
All households in the Parish of Heptonstall received details of the proposed scheme together with a questionnaire designed to establish the level of support for it. Some 42% of you returned the questionnaires (47% in the Village) but fewer than 50% were in favour of proceeding (46% in the Village and 43% in the Parish as a whole).
Although 74% of you thought that Heptonstall Village needed additional off-street parking and 57% of you thought that the proposed lay-by would make a worthwhile addition, only 43% and 45% of you respectively thought the proposed scheme would deliver Value for Money and were willing to pay extra Council Tax to finance it.
You the Community “have had your say” and have come out clearly against proceeding with the scheme, the Parish Council and Traffic Group have accordingly closed down the Project. We will however continue to maintain what pressure we can on Calderdale Council to maintain and improve car parking facilities in the Village and the rest of the Parish.
The December Parish Council Meeting will take place at The School Hall, Heptonstall J I & N School on Monday, 5 December 2016 commencing at 7.30 p.m.
The Agenda can be seen here, and the Minutes of the last meeting in November can be seen here.
The November Parish Council Meeting will take place at The School Hall, Heptonstall J I & N School on Monday, 7 November 2016 commencing at 7.30 p.m.
The Agenda can be seen here, and the Minutes of the last meeting in October can be seen here.
The external cabinet for the defibrillator on the wall outside Heptonstall Post Office has now been installed. Very shortly the Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) will come and check all is OK.
A digital code will be set by YAS and will be given to anyone calling 999 in an emergency situation. This code will be used to open the cabinet housing the defibrillator itself which ‘talks you through’ the process of its use. Essential information is shown on the red strip on the outside of the cabinet.
