We have been notified that resurfacing work will take place for up to 3 days from the 23rd August 2017 and the road from Snaygill roundabout to Aire Valley Drive, Bradley will be closed.
This will not only affect residents accessing their properties but also traffic travelling to Skipton from the village.
The Parish Council has made an urgent request to Highways and the Police for consideration of the extra traffic which will be using Ings Lane and especially those turning right at the junction towards Skipton. We would like to see temporary traffic lights at this junction for the duration of the road closure to ensure safety at the junction.
We will update this post when we have further information.
Update: The road closure will be from 9.30am – 3.30pm

Scam calls

North Yorkshire Police have been made aware of members of the public receiving phone calls from a male, speaking in a foreign accent, claiming to be from BT advising them that their computer has alerted them to problems in relation to their Broadband/Router. He claims that it is being heavily infected with a virus and as such BT need to send an engineer to their property the next day. But beforehand they require the customer to log onto their computer to facilitate a fault report for the engineer.
If the customer refuses to go along with their scam, the male becomes extremely abusive.
If you have been victim to such a phone call please contact Action Fraud on 0300 1232040

Update on Neighbourhood Development Plan

The Bradleys Both Pre-Submission Consultation Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan was shared with the community during a statutory 6-week consultation and also with statutory bodies over the last year.

Since then, the Neighbourhood Planning Group have carefully reviewed all comments and feedback received and are now  finalising the Draft Final Neighbourhood Plan prior  to submitting it to Craven District Council.

The  FInal Neighbourhood Plan will then be submitted to an independent examiner, and once passed, it will proceed to Referendum of Bradleys Both residents.  A YES vote of over 50% of those voting will be required for the NDP to be incorporated into Craven District Council’s Local Development Plan and the Plan will then have statutory powers and will implement the vision for our community and shape the future up to 2032.


Untidy hedges and verges

The Parish Council has asked North Yorkshire County Council to inspect hedges and verges in the village which are overhanging pavements making it hazardous for pedestrians to walk safely, particularly to and from school with pushchairs and young children.
NYCC have inspected those on the list and will attend to any on their land and contact owners of properties where hedges are causing a problem that it is their responsibility to ensure they are not causing an obstruction to the pavements.
Lets all try and keep our village tidy and safe for all.


The defibrillator is located at the Village Hall.

When needed ring 999 and the operator will give you the code to open the box. The machine will talk you through how to operate, and the emergency services operator should stay on the phone to assist and give details of ETA of assistance.
