Bingley Town Council Serving the people of Bingley

Welcome to Bingley Town Council

Bingley Town Council is a parish council serving Bingley, Cottingley, Crossflatts, Eldwick, Gilstead and Micklethwaite. It is one of 19 town, parish and community councils in the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council area.

The Council was created in April 2016, with the inaugural meeting being held on 18th May. We are a team of 16 councillors who do not receive a salary and who are committed to working for a better Bingley, with the assistance of our Town Clerk. Details of your local Councillors can be found on our website. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Like other parish councils, Bingley Town Council aims to work towards improving community well-being and providing better services at a local level. Our activities fall into three main categories: –

  • representing the local community
  • delivering services to meet local needs
  • working to improve quality of life and community well-being

The Town Council is a formal body that has to conform to specific procedures and be publicly accountable.

Councillors attend council and committee/sub-committee meetings to discuss and make decisions about the work of the Council. They also meet local organisations and individual residents to address specific issues, and represent the parish on external bodies.
