Bingley Town Council: have your say on the plans for new offices and public toilet facilities in Bingley
Bingley Town Council consultation: new offices and public toilet facilities
In March 2018, Bingley Public Toilets will be shut by Bradford Metropolitan District Council. Bingley Town Council is exploring the possibility of a Community Asset Transfer and developing the toilet site into useful office space for the Town Council and public toilets for Bingley. Full details are available in Bingley Library and on Bingley Town Council website. Please read this information and look at the plans before completing this survey.
To enable the project to go ahead, the Town Council would apply for a fixed rate government loan of £157,500 repayable over 20 years. To repay this amount would involve a precept rise of around 60p per Band D household in 2018-19 and, in total, over the 20 year loan period each household would contribute £24.
In addition, Bingley Town Council would have to negotiate a Community Asset Transfer of the property from Bradford District Council in order to be responsible for and to take over the management of the site. The site would be leased to the Town Council for 94 years at a peppercorn rent.
Both of these applications and processes need evidence of public consultation - so please read the information on the website or in the library and then share your views through the survey below. The results will inform the Town Council's next steps. Thank you.
