ILKLEY Town Council has commissioned a community consultation to help inform its plans and priorities over the next few years.

The survey seeks to receive feedback on and awareness of current town council services and the importance of other local community facilities.

Responses and data will be used to help inform future projects and budget planning.

The consultation will be distributed to every household in mid-May in the centre pages of the Spring 24 newsletter and is also available on the council website until Friday, June 28.

Additionally, consultation events will take place on Wednesday, June 5, from 6pm to 8pm, and Saturday, June 8, 10am to noon, at the Clarke Foley Centre where residents can complete the survey in person and speak to councillor representatives. Someone will also be available on these dates to answer any queries or assist in completing the questionnaire.

Newly-elected Town Mayor, Councillor Damian Kearns, said: “This community consultation is an important exercise in local democracy, the results of which will be significant for Ilkley in the coming years. It is an opportunity for everyone to have their say and help shape our future. There are numerous ways to take part and I urge everybody to get involved.”

The results will be shared later in the year.
