Residents given chance to have their say on Birstall and Birkenshaw wards

Residents of Birstall and Birkenshaw are being asked for their views on how their ward should be developed over the next decade.

A major consultation, the biggest ever undertaken by councillors in Kirklees, will be launched from April 15.

Booklets will be distributed to households seeking views on community life such as transport and traffic.

Residents can have their say by completing an online survey and two open meetings have been arranged.
