A VILLAGE SOCIETY
THAT NEEDS YOU

Northowram has changed rapidly over the past 50 years from being a small village unchanged for many years to now being a large well developed area with many fields transformed to housing. Although change is necessary it needs to be managed by the residents. The Northowram Village Society is here to help focus residents concerns into relevant action.

NORTHOWRAM.ORG NEEDS TO ATTRACT YOUNGER AUDIENCE

We need someone with website experience to input any relevant information that will attract younger families and residents and hopefully make the site more representational across the spectrum of village life. Access will be given to input information to the site pages.

This could include promoting school or sports events or developing the links to Facebook for the Neighbourhood watch or selling items. 

The Northowram Village Society has a small fund of money to help in the long term funding of the site and expenses.

Please reply via email to: info@northowram.org

This site is funded by the Northowram Ward Forum, Northowram Village Society and Northowram Historical Society and currently promotes Development issues, village events and  historical society events. It also acts as a base of information for the village residents and those who are further afield and want to know more about the area.

ACTIVE PLANNING CONSIDERATIONS

At a meeting held by Calderdale Council on the 10th January 2011 it was agreed that Northowram is now designated as a Conservation area. Looking back it has been the result of a lot of work centred around the Village Society and other supporters that have spent many hours of valuable time to bring this about.

Currently we have a threat to this status that was achieved to protect the land surrounding the most historic parts of the village. 22 houses are planned by Charles Church (Persimmon Homes) next to Heywood Church and with a proposed access into the narrowest part of Upper Lane. The planning application number is –  17/01431/FUL.
