Car Park Proposal Cancelled

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.
