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.

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.
